2 years (4 semesters)
LANGUAGE OF INSTRUCTION
CONDITIONS OF REGISTRATION
A Bachelor in Physics, or an equivalent degree.
THE MASTER IN PHYSICS
provides students with advanced training in this field. They can specialise in subjects such as particle physics, quantum physics, theoretical physics, applied physics, and cosmology and particle astrophysics. They also get the chance to work with prestigious institutions, such as CERN, through the programme and its work placements. Students will acquire both a solid foundation in modern physics and expertise in their field of specialisation. Graduates commonly find employment in areas such as research, teaching and industry, and the modelling skills they develop are highly sought after in sectors such as economics and finance.
