General information

The School of Physics offers a Master’s degree programme which is open to foreign students who already have a solid background in physics and are eager to expand their knowledge and experience in an environment of modern physics research. The goal of the Master’s degree programme in Physics is to train excellent researchers in the specializations materials science, nuclear physics, isotope physics or theoretical physics.

Career prospects

The Master’s programme in Physics is primarily meant for students who want to become researchers. Most graduates will proceed with a PhD research project after their Master’s programme, either in Groningen or elsewhere. Nevertheless, many physicists who have trained as researchers will find jobs that are less explicitly oriented towards research. This is because training as a researcher in physics also develops general competences that make graduates highly versatile. During the Master’s degree programme, teamwork, communication and presentation are important qualities. In many cases considerable IT skills are developed. In practice, physics graduates can be found in consultancy firms, in process management, in commercial positions, in financial jobs or as teachers.


  • A Bachelor's degree in Physics or applied Physics
  • If you have a different degree, the Admissions Board will decide whether or not you can be admitted to the Master’s degree programme
