Physics and Astronomy

Radboud University

Master Postgraduate Nijmegen

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Mathematics, natural sciences and computer science
Course summary Applying the laws of physics in real-life situations, ranging from measuring brain activity to designing new materials and investigating space objects.
Course description Would you rather specialise in pure physics or discover the interface between physics and astronomy, mathematics, chemistry or biology? The choice is yours. At Radboud University, you can choose from six specialisations and within each specialisation you'll have plenty of room to customise your programme. We guarantee the highest quality for all specialisation programmes, resulting in number one rates by the Dutch 'Keuzegids Masters' for four years running. In your internship(s), you can dive into theoretical physics or perform your own experiments: discover new material properties in Europe's highest magnetic fields or with unique free electron lasers, study space objects with the telescopes on top of the Huygens Building or unravel brain activity with MRIs. It's all possible on the Radboud campus. That's why many international physicists come here to perform their experiments. Take Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, who revealed the amazing properties of graphene in our High Field Magnet Laboratory. In 2010, they received the Nobel Prize in Physics for those discoveries.
Study subjects Apart from compulsory courses and electives, a large part of this Master's programme consists of internships. You'll thus get an extensive experience in performing experiments in your field of interest.
Course objectives The programme depends on the specialisation you choose to follow.
