About

The two-year Physics and Astronomy - Gravitation, Astro-, and Particle Physics programme of the University of Amsterdam, a joint degree with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, stands at at the intersection of theoretical physics, experimental (astro)particle physics and astrophysics. 

Overview

Students benefit from a highly collaborative international research environment. Current research topics include gravitational waves, collider-based particle physics experiments and dark matter detection, and staff is involved in several large international research projects.

What does Gravitation, Astro-, and Particle Physics in Amsterdam have to offer me?

The Physics and Astronomy - Gravitation, Astro-, and Particle Physics programme of the University of Amsterdam offers a broad curriculum. Members of the research group are theorists and experimentalists, and you will be able to specialise in either theoretical, experimental (astro)particle physics or astrophysics. The curriculum is designed to challenge you and to give you the tools to work on your research topic in your second year. Current GRAPPA research topics include:

  • Gravitational waves
  • Collider-based particle physics experiments
  • Dark matter detection
  • Multi-messenger techniques (i.e. neutrinos, radio through gamma-ray signatures)
  • Particle acceleration in astrophysical sources
  • Cosmology
  • Beyond the Standard Model physics
