Stipends for international Ph.D. students at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics

    Starting from October of 2018, the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics offers stipends to international students who enrol in its Ph.D. program. Stipends are typically offered for two years, with a possibility of up to two extensions for another year. The stipend amounts to approximately PLN 4000, which is comparable to the stipends currently granted e.g. by the Berlin Mathematical School. However, living costs in Szczecin are much lower. Excellent students can obtain an additional stipend of at least PLN 1000 from the rektor of the University of Szczecin.

    Berlin can be reached easily by train or bus from Szczecin. There are low cost tickets which include free transport within Berlin. This gives students in Szczecin the opportunity to take advantage of courses and scientific events in Berlin. All students from Szczecin are allowed to take courses at the Berlin universities and to obtain credit which will be recognized by our faculty.

    At our faculty, most graduate courses are offered in English and the supervision of international graduate students can also be done in English. In addition, several of our professors can offer supervision in other European languages, such as German, Italian, Ukrainian. We have low class sizes and an excellent professor to student ratio, which gauarantees optimal supervision, see [Your possible future Ph.D. supervisor].

    The research groups of our facutly [Areas of Research] have high international standing and many internationals connections [Cooperation]. These connections frequently attract first class researchers from all over the world for colloquium talks, research visits and small conferences held at our faculty; see [Seminars], [Conferences]. We actively support our students in taking advantage of these connections and in developing international co-operation themselves.
