The master's degree in physics provides a thorough training with specialisations in areas such as particle physics, condensed matter physics, theoretical physics, applied physics, astronomy and astrophysics.

The course and internships offer students the opportunity to work alongside prestigious institutions such as CERN, ESA and NASA. Student acquires a solid foundation in modern physics on the course, together with in-depth expertise in their field of specialisation.

The master's degree opens the way to careers in research, teaching, industry, economics and finance.

The programme takes place over four semesters (although it can also be extended up to six semesters), and consists of specialist courses, optional courses, practical work, seminars and a dissertation. Completing the degree earns 120 credits, as follows:
