Course Description:

How do the liquid crystals in your TV screen produce images? How do MRI scanners work? Physics is for curious people: how does nature work and what can we do with that knowledge? This has produced ground-breaking theories. GPS, for example, would not work without applying the theory of relativity.

The Physics degree programme at the University of Groningen teaches you to analyse well and to tackle problems. You will construct models in the laboratory or on the computer to explain phenomena. You will be introduced to the following three specialisations from your first year:

  • General physics - You can specialise in theoretical physics, nanophysics or particle physics.
  • Physics for energy & sustainability - Energy is a physical concept. How does our energy consumption affect the climate and what can we do about it?
  • Physics in life & health - This specialiasation is mainly about medical research and biophysics from a physics perspective. For example, how does a PET scan work?

Physics at the University of Groningen has an excellent reputation. The Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials is ranked fourth in best materials research institutes in the world.

Physics graduates have excellent career options and many choose to go into business. The business world loves physicists, particularly because of their ability to analyze. Examples include: industry, consultancy, banks and insurance companies, software and automation companies, research institutes and universities
