Quantum Computer Science

Entry requirements

The entry requirements might change slightly before the programme is fully accredited, but the following can be expected.

  • Degree

    You are expected to have a Bachelor’s degree in Physics, Mathematics or Computer Science, or a closely related field.

  • Mathematical maturity

    In addition to a Bachelor's degree in Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics or a closely related degree, you must be able to demonstrate what we call mathematical maturity. You:

    • Have a good understanding of the fundamentals of linear algebra.
    • Can confidently understand proofs.
    • Have experience writing proofs by induction, epsilon-delta proofs, and proof by contradiction.

    You can demonstrate mathematical maturity with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics, by having successfully completed a minor in Mathematics (like the 30 EC UvA minor Mathematical Themes, or Logic and Computation), having successfully completed at least 24 EC of courses that teach formal mathematical proving, or having done something equivalent.

If you are in doubt whether you satisfy these requirements, or have any other questions, do feel free to reach out to msc-qucs-science@uva.nl.

  • NVAO

    The NVAO is the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders, or (in Dutch) de Nederlands-Vlaamse Accreditatieorganisatie). Until they deliver a positive assessment of the programme, the Master’s programme in Quantum Computer Science cannot start.  

    This is why enrolling is currently not yet possible. Through the mailing list we can keep you up-to-date on the progress, and let you know as quickly as possible when and whether you can officially enroll in the programme.
