The two-year track Advanced Matter and Energy Physics in the Master’s programme Physics and Astronomy, a joint degree with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, is among the best experimental physics programmes in the world. It offers you challenging courses and research opportunities in hot topics in laboratories around the world and prepares you for an exciting career in research.
The academic year 2020-2021 will start as planned in September. We expect small-scale on-site attendance, within the guidelines of the Dutch government, will be possible once again from September. This means we will be providing a form of hybrid education in the first semester, partly on-campus and partly online. From 1 July it will be clear what our hybrid education is going to look like.
Admission during COVID-19
In exceptional cases, the UvA will allow you to start your Master’s programme before having fully completed your Bachelor’s degree or pre-Master’s. The study delay must be COVID-19 related and concern courses from the second semester of the 2019-2020 academic year (February through June 2020). Check the Applications and Admissions pages for more information.
If you enjoy the challenge of fundamental experimental research and always keep an eye open for possible applications of your results, Advanced Matter and Energy Physics might be the track for you. Furthermore, you:
Experimental physics in Amsterdam is among the best in the world. This two-year track offers challenging courses and research opportunities focused on current trends in the field. For example, you can participate in research projects on:
For Physics and Astronomy only, we have in addition to our regular Amsterdam Science Talent Scholarship, extra scholarships available for excellent (non-Dutch) EU/EER students. The Amsterdam Physics and Astronomy Scholarship.
Advanced Matter and Energy Physics is a track in the Master's programme Physics and Astronomy, a joint degree programme of the University of Amsterdam and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Courses are taught at locations of both universities. UvA and VU jointly issue a degree certificate in Physics and Astronomy to graduates. As a Physics and Astronomy student in Amsterdam you benefit from expertise, networks and research projects at both universities and affiliated research institutes.
