That’s a Wrap!

Summer School 2015 has come to a close, and what a Summer School it was.

Students from all over Australia (and one participant from Kolkata) converged on the sunny University of Newcastle for AMSI’s 13th annual Summer School in Mathematical Sciences. It was a great opportunity for the students to develop their skills and do some networking over the summer break.

Students stayed on residence at the university for the four-week program where they got to participate in one or two of the 8 carefully selected subjects on offer. The event was complemented by a highly amusing public lecture The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Geometry courtesy of Norman Do; a Careers afternoon that gave students the opportunity to hear from employers, ask questions and network and a fantastic Women in Mathematics Event presented by AustMS Women in Mathematics Special Interest Group.

The social side was just as lively with multiple BBQ’s, a movie night and “Murray Elder’s Famous Bushwalk.” Of course, despite the beach closure due to shark sighting, no summer would be complete without a beach party, which was perfectly timed as it gave students the opportunity to re-forge any friendships that had been broken from the previous nights trivia competition.

The AMSI Summer School is funded jointly by the Department of Education, the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute, with support from University of Newcastle, AustMS and ANZIAM.


  • 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.

  • I would recommend AMSI summer school to other graduate students - the summer break is a great time to learn something new.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!
