Physics is an indispensable part of today’s society. Modern life would be entirely different without computer chips, lasers or MRI screening. In the Physics and Astronomy Master’s programme, you’ll engage in ground-breaking fundamental research and its applications, whether you’re interested in physical processes within cells, creating artificial photosynthesis or studying astroparticle physics.
Physics and Astronomy in Amsterdam is a joint degree between the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. As a student, you will therefore benefit from the expertise, networks and research projects at both universities. UvA and VU jointly issue a degree certificate to graduates.
