Research in Physics, theoretical (MSc)
During the programme you will develop strong analytical and computational skills.
In the first year, courses at an advanced level in theoretical physics, mathematics or general physics are taken. The rest of the courses can be chosen within the area of Physics or Mathematics and a maximum of one master course can be taken anywhere at Leiden University. The second year consists of a research project in theoretical physics, to be completed with the writing of a master’s thesis and an oral presentation.
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.
