GTS (General and Transferable Skills) courses at Chalmers and obligatory PhD courses at the Faculty of Science, University of Gothenburg.

At Chalmers there are the following graduate schools for those who wish to take a PhD at Mathematical Sciences:

In addition, a doctoral student in mathematics or mathematical statistics may be admitted to the graduate school in Biosciences, which is an interdisciplinary graduate school.

The third-cycle subjects we have at the University of Gothenburg are
