Program description

The two-year programme places a strong emphasis on high quality research training. Students can spend up to 60% of their time on research project in the specialisation of their choice.

The department in Leiden is known for its top-level international research and excellent research groups, both theoretical and experimental, in which you will participate during your research projects. Many master's students obtain their degree with a publication in an international refereed journal.

The programme offers a wide choice of individual profiles. Four specialisations have been defined within programme: Research in Physics, Physics and Science Based Business, Physics and Science Communication and Society, and Physics and Education. Moreover, the Research Specialisation has predefined streams for Experimental Physics, Theoretical Physics, Cosmology, as well as a fast 'pre-PhD' stream for continuing with Ph.D. research within the Casimir Research School. Should you have individual plans, these can be discussed with the study adviser and submitted to the Board of Examiners for approval.

The degree obtained guarantees a thorough experience on the frontline of physics research and a practical training of communicative and computer skills required to function in industry, society and research. The strength of the programme is its tailor-made character. For each student a programme will be designed, which for experimental Physics may comprise elements of different research areas.
