Xuetang Math Talents Undergraduate Program


Tsinghua Xuetang Math Talents Undergraduate Program is one of the first six Tsinghua Xuetang Talent Education Programs, which aims to select young students who are highly talented in mathematics and aspire to be dedicate themselves to mathematical research as lifetime career, provides students with comprehensive education, offers them opportunities to learn from and work with international mathematical masters in the main areas of mathematics, and thus helps them grow quickly into significant mathematicians. The Program was established in September 2009, with Mr. Shing-Tung Yau being the Chief Professor.

Students Selection:

Through college independent admission and college entrance examination, students are enrolled in September each year. In the spring semester of the following year, some freshmen, sophomores and juniors will be selected into the program; students who have been in the program may choose whether to stay in the program based on their academic performance and personal intention; non-mathematical majors who have taken core mathematical courses required for their peers in the Department of Mathematical Sciences may also apply for this program. Students who are selected into the program will receive specific scholarship.

Education Achievement:

Ever since the establishment of Tsinghua Xuetang Math Talents Undergraduate Program (2012-2018), there have been 130 graduates from the program, among which 25 graduates continued to do Ph.D. at Tsinghua University, and 98 graduates went to European or American well-known universities for advanced studies of mathematics or related disciplines, including 8 graduates at Harvard University, 6 at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 6 at Columbia University, 8 at Princeton University, 6 at University of California, Berkeley, and 8 at Ecole Normale Superieure (ENS). Some other graduates went to Stanford University, Yale University, California Institute of Technology, University of Paris VI, University of Paris XI and other universities for advanced studies.
