Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does the study programme look like?

    In this two-year Master’s programme you  tailor your own study programme according to your academic interests, in consultation with the Programme Manager and with your research thesis supervisors. In the first year, you follow courses in physics, biophysics, and biomedical physics. In your second year you will do an extensive one-year research project, which is usually conducted in one of the associated research groups. The results of the project are then summarized in a thesis and discussed in a public presentation in front of field experts.

  • What is a joint degree?

    The University of Amsterdam and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam have joined forces in the Physics and Astronomy Master’s programme. As a student you will benefit from expertise, networks and research projects at both universities and affiliated research institutes. Upon completion of the programme you will receive a joint degree certificate.
