This program will train you to conduct high-level independent research in pure and applied mathematics.

Admission Requirements

Applicants must have a master’s degree in mathematics, statistics, or an equivalent degree.

French and English proficiency

Although knowledge of French or English is not a prerequisite for admission, students must be able to read and understand texts in French or in English to successfully complete this program. Students who are not proficient enough in these languages may have difficulty in their studies.

In the event of significant deficiencies, program direction can impose corrective measures.
