Admission to the education programme Mathematics
in the Doctoral School of Exact and Natural Sciences
language of education: English

Jagiellonian University in Kraków is a leading centre for mathematical research in Poland and provides a vibrant and active environment for students from Poland and around the world seeking a PhD degree in mathematics.

In the four-year PhD programme, the doctoral student will work under the supervision of a professor on a research project leading to a PhD degree in mathematics. A teaching program for PhD students consists of advanced lecture courses, research seminars, reading classes, and a doctoral colloquium, and can be further extended by other activities (summer schools etc).
A first degree is required to enter the program. It will usually be a master's degree, but in exceptional cases, a bachelor's degree may suffice.
Every PhD student will be receiving a scholarship (37% of the minimum wage of a professor). The scholarship increases to 57% of the minimal professor's wage after a positive mid-term evaluation conducted after two years.  

The mathematical research conducted at the Jagiellonian University covers most fields of modern mathematics. Studentships are in a range of areas in pure mathematics, including algebra, algebraic and analytic geometry, complex analysis, differential equations, dynamical systems, graph theory, functional analysis, and number theory.
