Experimental Physics

Utrecht University

Master Postgraduate Utrecht

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Mathematics, natural sciences and computer science
Course summary Particle physics deals with the building blocks of matter and the forces between them. The programme offers courses on all aspects of the Standard Model of Particle Physics, including Nuclear Physics.
Course description Particle physics is one of the strong areas within Experimental Physics in Utrecht. The slightly broader field of Subatomic Physics (including also Nuclear Physics) has a long tradition of excellence at Utrecht University, recently Utrecht has concentrated more on high profile research on elementary particles. The research is performed in international collaborations at research centers in the USA and in Europe. Nationally, the group cooperates in the Nikhef consortium. For the teaching programme in the MSc there is a strong cooperation with the Amsterdam universities. Utrecht is the only Dutch university to contribute to ALICE, one of the large experiments at the new accelerator LHC at CERN in Geneva. The research has an intimate connection to different areas of theoretical physics (Quantum Field Theory, Relativistic Hydrodynamics and even String Theory) and is of relevance also for Astrophysics. It uses state-of-the-art technologies in particle detection, electronics and computing.
Study subjects The programme is divided into two separate years. As a student you will start with the taught year, and mostly work on research and research-oriented seminars in the second year.

In short, the following rules apply:

  • The “EU/EEA rate” is the regular fee for students from within the EU/EEA.
  • The “non-EU/EEA rate” is the rate for students from outside the EU/EEA.
  • The “institutional rate” is for all students who have already obtained a bachelor’s or master’s degree and who want to start a second programme leading to a degree at the same level or at a lower level.
  • Note that FT, PT and D stand for "full-time", "part-time" and "dual", respectively.

Make sure you contact your institution to find out what rate applies to you. The rates listed here are estimates.
