the same time as the examinations for MSc in Applications of
Mathematics and MSc/PhD in Computer Science. If you apply for
multiple programmes amongst these, the entrance exam you have
to write depends on which combination of courses you apply
- If you apply for MSc/PhD in Mathematics in combination
with any other course, you must write the exam for MSc/PhD in
- If you do not apply for MSc/PhD in Mathematics but you
apply for MSc in Applications of Mathematics in combination with
MSc/PhD in Computer Science, you must write the exam for
MSc in Applications of Mathematics.
- Based on your performance in the exam you write, you will be
