The University of Groningen has a long-standing tradition of high-level physics research, with the highlight of the Nobel Prize awarded to Frits Zernike in 1953.

The Physics Master's degree programme is open to students who already have a solid background in physics and are eager to expand their knowledge and experience in an environment of modern physics research. The goal of the Master's degree programme in Physics is to train excellent researchers in the field of materials science, subatomic physics, isotope physics or theoretical physics.

The programme offers the following tracks: 

* Quantum Universe

* Advanced Materials

* Science, Business and Policy

Why study this programme in Groningen?

  • Wide spectrum of high-level research in Physics and related sciences
  • Our Materials Science Research ranks high in the THES world's Top 15 institutes in material science
  • Best master programme Physics in the Netherlands according to Elsevier
  • Our faculty is the home of the 2016 Nobel Prize Winner in Chemistry, Ben Feringa, and the Nobel Prize winner in Physics, Frits Zernike
  • Gives access to the additional, highly selective High Systems and Materials Honours Master

After your studies

The Master's programme in Physics is primarily meant for students who want to become researchers. Most graduates will proceed with a PhD research project after their Master's programme, either in Groningen or elsewhere. Nevertheless, many physicists who have trained as researchers will find jobs that are less explicitly oriented towards research. This is because training as a researcher in physics also develops general competences that make graduates highly versatile.

During the Master's degree programme, teamwork, communication and presentation are important qualities. In many cases considerable IT skills are developed. In practice, physics graduates can be found in consultancy firms, in process management, in commercial positions, in financial jobs or as teachers.
