About Physics

The Physics master's programme is intimately related to the scientific research carried out at the Leiden Institute of Physics. You will spend approximately 50% of your programme on research, as a member of one of our top - level international research groups. We offer five research specialisations, with emphasis on either experimental or theoretical physics, which train you as an independent rese archer. We also offer three specialisations that put Physics in broader societal contexts and train you for careers where a Physics background is an asset. Each of these specialisations aims at providing a combination of research independence and content proficiency that fully prepares you for a successful professional development for your professional development.

Are you looking into furthering your education in fundamental questions in physics? Then our Physics master's programme is the right choice. Whether you are interested in experimental or theoretical research, or cosmology, we offer it all. You will be trained for a career in research within or outside academia.

Curriculum and Overview

The degree obtained guarantees a thorough exper ience on the frontline of physics research and a practical training of communicative and computer skills required to function in industry, society and research.
