Interested in Studying Mathematics?

Are you looking for a field of study that is fun? Are you looking for a field of study that challenges you intellectually? Are you looking for a field of study with good career prospects?
Then you should think about studying mathematics!

If you are interested in studying mathematics, but are not yet sure or do not know which course of study suits you, then you have come to the right place! Even without a high school diploma, you can already gain your first study experience with us in an early study program. After you have obtained the general university entrance qualification, you are eligible to apply for the specialized Bachelor's degree program or the teacher training Bachelor's program in mathematics.

The bachelor's degree is often followed by a Master's degree: In Bonn, you can apply for the Master's program Mathematics after completing the Bachelor's program Mathematik, or you can follow up the Teacher Training Bachelor's degree with the Master of Education.
