Graduate students from Physics programme at the University of Copenhagen may specialize in one of numerous sub-fields such as particle physics, atomic physics, solid-state physics, nuclear physics, complex systems in physics and quantum information technology.
As a graduate student in physics you will achieve the academic qualifications to independently participate in modern research and the communication of results. There are plenty of themes and courses to choose from, so you will determine your own course of study to a large degree.
Unemployment among physics graduates is quite rare indeed and most physicists find work in a variety of settings. These include, but are far from limited to, private and public sector research, finance, programming in the IT industry or in private enterprises developing new materials, equipment or methods of analyzing. Furthermore, it is possible for all physicists to qualify for teaching at high school level.
Astrophysicists find employment as teachers or at observatories all over the world. There are job opportunities for bio- and medical physicists at hospitals or in the pharmaceutical industry, while geophysicists may work in the private and public sector, e.g. with environment-related problems, oil- or wind based energy or engineering.
The private sector has begun to deploy physicists in a more business-oriented context. A good example is how, in finance, physicists are engaged to predict market fluctuations. Some physicists are also employed as programmers in the IT sector as they often have strong programming backgrounds.
