Expand your mathematical world

AMSI Summer School is an annual national training and networking event for honours and postgraduate students in the mathematical sciences and cognate disciplines, early career researchers and industry professionals looking to upskill.

Celebrating its 23rd year, Summer School 2025 is a four-week in person event hosted by The University of Sydney from 6 – 31 January (virtual participation also available).

Connect with peers, researchers and potential future employers while developing your mathematical skills. You can even take a subject for credit!

Applicants are strongly encouraged to attend in person to maximise their experience, however, can opt to participate online. Please note, while AMSI and The University of Sydney will endeavour to provide the best experience possible for virtual participants, not all elements of the program may be available remotely, and some online functions may be limited.
