Research in Physics, Quantum Matter and Optics (MSc)
The programme guarantees a thorough experience on the frontline of physics research with a practical training of communicative and computer skills.
The programme includes two experimental projects, performed in a master-apprentice setting in physics research groups active in the field of ‘Quantum Matter and Optics’, and a full year of courses at the undergraduate level.
The courses Quantum theory A, Statistical physics A are compulsory, but the other courses can be chosen from a wide spectrum of (mainly Physics, Astronomy, and Mathematics) courses at Leiden University, and sometimes even at other universities or graduate schools.
The programme can to a high degree be tailored to individual needs and interests. But it should have a sufficient level and cohesion and the elective part requires approval of the Board of Examiners in advance.
The Physics master's programme offers you a lot of options to create your own programme. There is also the possibility to follow an internship abroad at another university or in a company or to follow courses at another university in the Netherlands or abroad.
