The Physics, Particle Physics programme from Lund University is ideal as the beginning of an academic career in particle physics, but also opens a door to other careers in a diversified society. 


During the Physics, Particle Physics programme from Lund University you will gain skills in physics and mathematics as well as computers, information technology, e-Science and other cutting-edge technologies used in the experiments.

Today our understanding is described by the Standard Model theory, which has an exceptional predictive power, but is incomplete. We explore the predictions of the Standard Model and seek a more complete understanding, i.e. beyond the Standard Model. In practice we conduct the research in global experimental collaborations. Today these experiments are mainly done at the LHC collider at CERN.

Career prospects

In addition to preparing the students for PhD studies in the field, the programme will also provide a suitable start for a future career as one of the international laboratories. As the experiences are performed in large international collaborations, the programme is also intended for those who plan a future working career in an international environment. The programme also provides the same career options as the Master's programme in Physics - General.
