This Physics - Astronomy and Space Physics specialisation from Uppsala University covers the entire length scale from subatomic strings to the whole universe, with forefront research across all sub-branches of physics - from research on elementary particles and materials, the structure of the earth and its atmosphere, to space and the properties of the universe.
Uppsala University is the only place in Sweden where you can study both space physics and astronomy. Here you can research the cosmos using state-of-the-art technology (ground- and space-based instrumentation, supercomputers) to answer some of the most fundamental questions in physics.
Our graduates work at companies/state agencies like ABB, the National Defence Research Institute (FOI) and insurance companies, as group leaders in research and development, data analysts and consultants.
Even if you do not continue to pursue a career in academia, your qualifications (numerical modelling, data mining) will make you an attractive recruit in a wide range of professions. As an astrophysicist/space physicist you can expect above-average employability.
