The two-year programme places a strong emphasis on high quality research training. Students can spend up to 60 percent of their time on research project in the specialisation of their choice.
The Physics 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 and has four specialisations: 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 PhD research within the Casimir Research School. In some cases, the programme can be adjusted to suit your personal interests.
No work experience is required.
