Overview

The master in Theoretical Physics and Applications from Université de Cergy-Pontoise aims at providing students with a high-level formation in Theoretical and Computational Physics, together with a deeper insight in one selected research field : Statistical Physics, Quantum systems, Condensed matter,  Integrable Systems, Complex Systems, Dynamical Systems.

A broad spectrum of subjects is thus covered : from the mathematical accuracy of integrable models to the complexity of biological systems, social paradigms or communication networks. A wide horizon of applications is then open since these fields lie at crossroads to several domains of science : Mathematical and Statistical Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, Biology,  Economy and Sociology.

In addition to solid foundations in Fundamental Physics, the students will have acquired a reinforced formation in the domain they chose not only through the specialized courses they take during the third semester but also by the practical experience they will have obtained after four month of research work.

"Bourse de la Région Ile de France" (merit scholarship)
  • UCP receives funding from the "Ile de France Region" to provide scholarships for outstanding foreign students at M1 and M2 level (applicants obtaining the scholarship for M1 are prioritary for a renewal under certain conditions).
  • The amount of the scholarship is 10,500 €/yr plus some help for accommodation.
  • Interested applicants should have excellent records as a pre-selection is done at the level of each University. The Region does not accept individual applications. Exact dead lines vary every year but they are around middle march. So students and should inform the academic contacts on due time.
"Bourse d'excellence de l'UCP" (merit scholarship):
  • In addition, UCP proposes a merit scholarshipb only for M2 students, with outstanding curriculum. The amount of the scholarship is 7000€/yr plus registration fees exemption. This grant is devoted to student interested in pursuing their Ph.D. in a domain of interest of one of the UCP's research team, namely, in the case of this master, one research team of the LPTM (Laboratoire de Physique Théorique et Modélisation).
  • Interested applicants should inform one of the academic contacts of the Master of their intention to apply for this grant. They will have to apply to the Master program and send the application for the grant

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
