The Zurich Graduate School in Mathematics is a joint venture of the department of mathematics at ETH (D-MATH) and the Institute of Mathematics at University Zurich (I-MATH). Collaborating closely in research fields and programs in the past, the departments founded the Graduate School in 2003 to offer a common and internationally recognized PhD-education in all major areas of mathematics and hence extend and enrich the sense of community. 

At this time we are working on a structured PhD-program including existing activities such as the Zurich Graduate Colloquium in Mathematics, several International Research Training Groups as well as graduate courses, research seminars, lectures, workshops, summer schools and conferences. The close cooperation with the FIM (Forschungsinstitut für Mathematik) and further special events will provide an international and challenging atmosphere. A broad spectrum of scholary activities completes the program.

 You find on this website various informations about our Graduate School such as its academic programm and the online application form.

 All of us in the Graduate School wish you good fortune as you pursue your advanced degree, and we hope you will contact us if we can help you along the way. Graduate study is exhilarating and life-changing.
