What will I learn?

Do you wish to dive into an area of physics and work independently with a thesis in a specialisation you think is exciting? Our MSc Physics will provide you with this opportunity, and we can offer these in several fields of study. 
With a Master in Physics, you are attractive in the labour market, both in the public and private sectors, in areas connected to research, consultancy, engineering, and education.
In physics, we try to reveal the secrets of nature, from the microcosm of elementary particles to the macrocosm of astrophysics. Between these two extremes, there is a wealth of subjects, ranging from biophysics at a cellular level and medical research to the development of new understanding in fields such as nanotechnology and climate. At present, these and many other areas are advancing in fascinating ways that you get to delve into when you study physics with us.
