Course Description

The physicists and astronomers at Radboud University are internationally renowned. They attract attention worldwide with spectacular discoveries - from the origin of cosmic particles to magnetism with light. All lectures are enriched by the research carried out at the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM), the Institute of Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP) and the Donders Centre for Neuroscience. And this is where the secret of good education lies, according to a recent evaluation by a commission of experts.

Specialisations within the Master's in Physics and Astronomy

You can choose one of the following three subject areas:

Personal tutor

Under the guidance of a personal tutor, this programme offers you considerable freedom to follow your own interests. Within your specialisation you will be able to select a research group and you will be allocated a personal tutor. Together you will decide what research you want to do and which specialisation or subject choices will be most appropriate. In short, you develop a made-to-measure programme based on your own wishes.

Unique equipment

Our Faculty of Science has access to unique equipment and facilities for studying the properties of materials and molecules. This includes a High Field Magnet Laboratory (HFML), which draws scientists to Nijmegen from all over the world. In addition, we have an advanced NanoLab, NMR Lab and Laser Lab. Our newest acquisition is a Free Electron Laser, which we have been able to build thanks to a 23 euros million subsidy from the Dutch government and now the Nijmegen Centre for Advanced Spectrometry is attracting top researchers.

Career prospects

Seventy percent of graduates continue to do a PhD project in Nijmegen or elsewhere in the world. Within our research institutes there are vacancies that come up every year. In addition, graduates also find work as researchers and managers within international companies such as Philips, McKinsey and ASML and research institutes such as ESA and CERN.
