Testimonials

  • AMSI Summer School was great for two reasons: the first, it allowed students to explore areas of research not usually offered by their home institution. And secondly, it made me realise just how big the mathematics community really is, by giving me the opportunity to meet mathematics and statistics students, academics and employers from all around Australia.

    Brock Hermans 2014 Summer School participant
  • I would recommend AMSI Summer School to other graduate students - the summer break is a great time to learn something new.

    Flavio Nardi 2014 Summer School participant
  • Would you recommend the AMSI Summer School to other students, and if so, why? I would recommend taking it for the purpose of networking, discovering new areas of maths and stats to study, seeing new cities, experiencing different universities, as well as gaining knew knowledge.

    Devina Martina 2014 Summer School participant
  • How do you think you have developed as a result of attending the summer school? I developed appreciation of the diversity of mathematics and the application of techniques is not restricted to a narrow field of mathematics.

    Christopher Zoppou 2014 Summer School participant
  • AMSI Summer School is a great way to experience a course from a new lecturer in a new environment and to enjoy all the social benefits of being within close quarters to so many other mathematically minded students.

    Kate Atwell 2014 Summer School participant
  • AMSI Summer School provides a once in a lifetime opportunity for many students in the mathematical sciences to study a wide variety of advanced topics taught by Australia's foremost lecturers in an inspiring environment. The enthusiasm for mathematics and statistics and the engagement of students and lecturers in the school generates that special energy rarely seen throughout a regular semester. What better way to spend a summer!

    Jan De Gier 2013 AMSI Summer School Director
  • The most enjoyable aspect was the excellent quality of lecturer and the ability to study a more obscure field than is usually available to an honours student.

    Patrick Eades 2015 Summer School participant
  • The intellectual content is of a high standard. The networking opportunities and social opportunities are valuable and unique. It is one of the few programs that elevate undergraduate mathematics in Australia to an international standard.

    Mahrita Harahap 2015 Summer School participant
  • The fact that the AMSI Summer School offers some very niche subjects that most universities can’t provide taught by the Australia's best mathematicians and statisticians. I also like how the teachers have all the time in the world for us to consult with them.

    Daniel Ogburn 2015 Summer School participant
  • The most enjoyable aspect was the opportunity to meet academics and fellow students, both as a means of making contacts and learning about careers and research opportunities in mathematics.

    Dominic Tate 2015 Summer School participant
  • I enjoyed having the opportunity to meet new people from around the country, and the ability to share interests in areas of mathematics. The courses have allowed me to broaden my knowledge to disciplines, which I have had little to no contact with previously.

    Alex Mundey 2015 Summer School participant
  • The most enjoyable aspects were the experience of living and socialising with other students from all around Australia. The effort by the organisers to make the Summer school worthwhile was very commendable. Thanks for the positive experience.

    Mark Stevens 2015 Summer School participant
  • The lecturer gave an excellent course which allowed the participants to gain a decent portion of his deep knowledge of the topic.

    Heath Winning 2015 Summer School participant
  • The summer school was an excellent way to get a broad introduction into various topics in a very short amount of time. It has saved me a lot of time (probably months!) in learning the same material independently.

    Joel Ferguson 2015 Summer School participant
  • The most enjoyable aspect was making a lot of new friends from all across Australia, and the condensed four week unit was a great way to study, allowing me to more completely immerse myself in the content.

    Ryland Newstead 2015 Summer School participant
  • Very interesting and well taught. The lecturers were very engaging, passionate and positively enthusiastic about the field. This made the lectures and problems approachable, relevant and curiously interesting.
