AIMS: The African Institute for Mathemathical Sciences

AIMS offers an intensive one-year graduate level course leading to a master's-level Postgraduate Diploma in the Mathematical Sciences, formally accredited by the Universities of Cape Town, Stellenbosch, and the Western Cape, taught in association with the Faculty of Mathematics of the University of Cambridge, and the Division of Physical Sciences at the University of Oxford.
The course prospectus may be downloaded here: prospectus.pdf.
Application for admission in September 2009 is now open.
The first round of selections are made in March 2009, and it is advantageous to have your application in before that date.
Full bursaries covering tuition and accommodation costs will be available. However, owing to limited funds, support for travel will have to be applied for separately. Therefore, every effort should be made by applicants to secure support for their fare (or at least a partial contribution) from their home country).

Applicants should hold, or anticipate completing by the start date of the AIMS course, a 4-year university degree in mathematics, or any science or engineering subject with a significant mathematics component. An applicant's record should demonstrate a strong mathematical aptitude.
The application process is highly competitive and potential applicants must be able to demonstrate both a high degree of motivation and the preparation and ability required to complete the course successfully.
We advise students with an insufficient knowledge of English to follow an English course in their home country before coming to AIMS. This can be followed up at AIMS with English conversation and Scientific writing classes at AIMS.

One of the goals of AIMS is to recruit a student body representative of Africa's diversity. Each applicant's dossier will be evaluated in the light of the prior educational opportunities available to her or him.

An application form may be downloaded in one of the following formats: OpenDocument (ODF), PDF, plain text.
The preferred format is the OpenDocument format. OpenOffice.org is a multiplatform and multilingual office suite and an open-source project which uses the OpenDocument format. Compatible with all other major office suites, the product is free to download, use, and distribute.

Completed applications should be sent by post to:

Administrative Officer
African Institute for Mathematical Sciences
6-8 Melrose Road
Muizenberg, 7945
South Africa.
