This Master's programme in Physics and Astronomy programme at Radboud University studies the interface between physics and astronomy, mathematics, chemistry and biology. You can choose from six specialisations to define your field of interest within Physics and Astronomy:

Particle and Astrophysics

Although particle physics and astrophysics act on completely different length and time scales, they both use the laws of physics to study the universe. In the Particle and Astrophysics Master's specialisation at Radboud University you’ll dive into these extreme worlds and unravel the inner workings of the universe from the smallest to the largest systems.

Neurophysics

Our brain contains many ingenious networks of billions of interconnected neurons. Together, they have an information processing capacity and flexibility that far exceeds modern supercomputers, or any artificial intelligent system. In this specialisation, we aim at unravelling the neuro-computational mechanisms of this fascinating, complex system using experimental approaches, advanced theory and computational models.

Physics of Molecules and Materials

As a scientist, you’re a problem solver. But how do you tackle a problem when there are no adequate theories and calculations become far too complicated? In the specialisation in Physics of Molecules and Materials you’ll be trained to take up this challenge in a field of physics that is still largely undiscovered: the interface between quantum and classical physics.

Science in Society

Science and technology have a profound influence on society, but the reverse is also true: society significantly shapes the ways in which science and technology evolve. However, experience shows that scientists on the one hand and the general public, government and businesses on the other aren’t always able to clearly understand one another. That is why experts with a background in science and an understanding of social processes are indispensable. This specialisation will equip you with the knowledge, tools and skills to be a professional intermediary between science and society whilst getting a broader societal perspective.

Science, Management and Innovation

In Science, Management and Innovation (SMI) you will gain expertise in societal challenges, work on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and learn the ability to speak the language of policy and business.

About University

Radboud University is among the top one percent of universities in the world. What’s more, the 2010 Nobel Prize in physics was awarded to two professors connected to Radboud University. Radboud is the best traditional, general university in the Netherlands, according to the Dutch university information guide - Keuzegids Universiteiten 2020 and has won this award 8 times in 9 years.

International campus
The university is home to international students from 100 countries, and offers them 14 Bachelor’s and 35 Master’s programmes. Across its 7 faculties, teachers and researchers from over 50 countries explore all domains of science.

Radboud strives for the highest quality - not only in education, but also in its services. Its support services extend beyond the classroom, and give students the opportunity to practice sports or enjoy a mouth-watering meal. Also, the university offers a free Dutch course to each international student.

Pre-arrival services
The International Office of Radboud University provides special pre-arrival services for international students who are enrolling in an English-taught programme, including visa, housing, insurance and social activities. Students don’t have to be concerned about finding accommodation, as Radboud assists them with it.
