About

The Master's programme in Physics offered at Linnaeus University is focused on modern physics and opens up the possibility for analytical work in industry as well as postgraduate studies.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The goal of physics as a science is to uncover as far as possible the very essence of nature. Research in physics has resulted in a number of fundamental laws and relationships that can be applied in many areas of science and technology.

During your Physics studies at Linnaeus University , you will work closely with teachers and scientists involved in research projects. You will get a deeper knowledge and understanding of concepts and models in physics and will be able to initiate and conduct research independently. The programme is offered in English and is aimed at students from around the world. Since some of the courses are distance courses, you may study parts of the programme online.

Experiments are an important tool for testing hypotheses and formulating new theories. That is why laboratory work is used as a teaching method to practice experimental methodology.

As a physicist, you learn to build models, do calculations and make predictions - in short, to solve problems. Physics is not a homogeneous discipline, but rather it encompasses many different fields, such as, condensed matter physics, nanophysics, biophysics, nuclear physics, meteorology, oceanography and astronomy, just to name some of them.

Career

As a physicist, you can work with research and development in particular industries. As a rule, physicists carry out analytical and simulation tasks, but also do laboratory work. The education also provides a good basis for graduate studies in physics.

Student insurance

Make sure to cover your health, travel, and stay while studying abroad. Even global coverages can miss important items, so make sure your student insurance ticks all the following:

  • Additional medical costs (i.e. dental)
  • Repatriation, if something happens to you or your family
  • Liability
  • Home contents and baggage
  • Accidents
  • Legal aid
