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

The Physics department offers a Master's degree programme which is open to (foreign) 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 specialisations:
* Quantum Universe
* Advanced Materials

In the second year of your training you conduct a major research project matching the field of your specialisation.

Why in Groningen?

- Wide spectrum of high-level research in Physics and related sciences
- Physics field in Groningen has CHE Excellence Label

Job perspectives

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.

Job examples

- PhD research position
- Consultant
- Process manager
