The annual AMSI Summer School is the biggest national event for maths students in Australia with a record-breaking attendance of 168 students in 2017.
In January 2018 this four-week residential school will be hosted by Monash University (Clayton Campus), providing students from across Australia with the opportunity to develop their mathematical skills, meet like-minded people, and network with potential future employers at the Careers Afternoon.
The AMSI Summer School 2018 program offers eight carefully selected subjects to ensure the latest developments in Australian maths are offered to students, some of which may not be offered at a home university. Students can choose to study one or two courses and, with permission from a home university, students can use an AMSI Summer School subject to gain credit towards their degree.
The School is primarily for honours and postgraduate students in the mathematical sciences and cognate disciplines, but other students are welcome to apply.
The AMSI Summer School is jointly funded by the Department of Education and Training and the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute, with support from Monash University, AustMS, ANZIAM, the BHP Billiton Foundation (supporting the CHOOSEMATHS Travel Grants), and other event sponsors.
