Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does the study programme look like?

    The two-year Master's track Advanced Matter and Energy Physics gives you a solid understanding of gas phase, soft condensed matter and hard condensed matter physics. Using state-of-the-art equipment and under the supervision of top-ranked physicists you are invited to research the topic of your interest in one of the three study paths:

    • Emergent and energy materials
    • Soft matter
    • Atomic quantum physics

    The programme consists of compulsory courses, restricted-choice and free elective courses. In the second year you will do a research project in one of the participating research groups.

  • 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 degree certificate from both universities.
