The Master Algant is a two-year 2nd cycle university course of study in pure mathematics, with a strong emphasis on Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory, which is offered to all interested students since September 2004 in the framework of the Algant Consortium. Every student participating in the Algant Master will study two years and will be able to obtain a double degree: this is a diploma from the hosting institutions and a diploma supplement mentioning the Algant track. For updated info and deadlines keep looking at the Algant Home Page.

The ALGANT consortium consists of the following partners:
- Mathematisch Instituut Universiteit Leiden Leiden (Holland)
- Fakultät für Mathematik Universität Duisburg-Essen Essen (Germany)
- Fakultät für Mathematik Universität Regensburg Regensburg (Germany)
- Département de Mathématiques d’Orsay Université Paris-Sud Paris-Orsay (France)
- Institut de Mathématiques de Bordeaux Université de Bordeaux Bordeaux (France)
- Dipartimento di Matematica “F. Enriques” Università degli Studi di Milano Milano (Italy)
- Dipartimento di Matematica Pura e Applicata Università degli Studi di Padova Padova (Italy)
- Centre de Recherches Mathematiques & Institut de Sciences Mathematiques Concordia University Montreal (Quebec)
- African Institute for Mathematical Sciences Stellenbosch University Cape Town (South Africa)
Students can apply via the online procedure hosted on the main Algant website. Usually, applications are open in December and January. There are a number of scholarship available, both from the consortium, and from each institution above. The results are generally available in March.
The courses for the next academic year are detailed in the Courses tab.
- If you attend as a first year student, you need to take courses for 60 credits;
- as a second year, only 30 credits from classes as the other 30 will be your master thesis.
Both need to take 6 credits of "Applied Math", usually Numerical Linear Algebra, and 3 credits of type F, that will usually be a seminar.
