Our 8-year undergraduate-doctor program adopts a “3+2+3” mode. Before starting the autumn semester, candidates have to attend a spring semester’s preparatory study in Tsinghua University. After formal enrollment in autumn, students will first begin their 3-year study in basic courses of mathematics and physics. They can use the 4th and 5th years to find out their research directions. The final 3 years are doctoral studies, during which they will receive training for becoming professional scientists. After finishing the “3+2+3” program, students who meet the innovative achievement requirements of Qiuzhen College, Tsinghua University will be awarded Doctor of Science in Mathematics.
During the “3+2+3” program, students with excellent academic achievements and having finished doctoral thesis can apply for Doctor of Science in Mathematics in advance, but they have to be evaluated and approved by the College’s Teaching and Training Committee and pass international experts’ evaluations. If students fail to fulfill requirements for a degree in Doctor of Science in Mathematics after finishing doctoral studies, but meet requirements of the first 5-year studies in basic courses of mathematics, physics and scientific training, they can apply for a degree in Bachelor of Science after being evaluated and approved by the College’s Teaching and Training Committee. If students find the program do not fit themselves, and cannot meet the relevant academic requirements, after being evaluated and approved by the College’s Teaching and Training Committee, they will be transferred to Department of Mathematical Sciences for a diversified mathematical undergraduate training (detailed information can be found in Ⅵ).
