Mathematics & Computer Science Program


In our faculty you can study and research various areas of computer science and mathematics, both pure and applied, including computational biology.

Admission Requirements

Admission to the program is based on the combination of the following factors:

  • Your grades in the BSc courses.
  • Applicants must present a GPA of 90 (or the equivlent).
  • In cases of GPA lower than 90, candidates must add to the submissions file, a one page letter reasoning why they should be considered.
  • Recommendation letters: Reference letters are important ingredient in the application, especially if they are from a faculty or a supervisor that worked closely with the candidate on a research project, or other scientific-related activity. On the other hand, we are typically not interested to receive generic letters from lecturers in courses. If you cannot obtain a meaningful recommendation letter, it is not a problem and your application will be nevertheless considered.
  • Details of your math/CS related background (publications, participation in various science programs, mathematics or computer science olympiads, etc)
  • Results of the interview with the Board of Studies committee. When invited to such an interview you will receive a letter explaining what is expected and how to get prepared to it.
  • If you have a degree from a non-Israeli university then results of the GRE Math examination could be useful but not mandatory.


Note: Applicants with a lower grade average than required that believe that their grade average does not represent their capabilities should add to the application a one-page (maximum) statement explaining their capacity to succeed in the MSc track.
