This specialisation puts you at the very frontline of fundamental physics where we explore the structure of matter at the subatomic level and applications of our findings. The physics and the theoretical and experimental methods are used by researchers who try to understand nature at the most fundamental level, including astrophysics and cosmology. The technology that makes the experiments possible is also used in many other fields such as engineering, finance and medicine.
Physics at 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. The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala University is ranked No. 39 in the world according to the recent Shanghai ranking which makes it the highest ranked physics department in all of Scandinavia.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The specialisation in Nuclear and Particle Physics, within the Master’s Programme in Physics, is a good choice if you are interested in the very frontline of fundamental physics where we aim at understanding the structure of matter at the subatomic level and applications of this research. This involves both experimental and theoretical nuclear physics and particle physics.
Studying this specialisation puts you in contact with research groups that participate in the major physics experiments around the world. Faculty members in Uppsala are involved in theoretical research on the Standard Model and beyond and in experimental research in Higgs physics with the Atlas detector at the LHC, neutrino physics with the IceCube detector at the South Pole, strong interaction physics with the PANDA, KLOE-2 and BES III experiments, and nuclear structure physics with the AGATA experiment.
During the programme you can expect to:
- explore the structure of matter at the subatomic level and applications of this research
- get in contact with research groups that participate in the leading physics experiments in the world
- gain a solid background for employment in engineering, data analysis, software development or further PhD studies
A wide range of courses are available, including Accelerator physics and technology such as for radiation detectors for research and medical applications, Advanced nuclear physics, Advanced particle physics, Quantum field theory, Symmetry and group theory, Quantum chromodynamics, and Effective field theories. More basic courses are also available, including Special relativity, Electrodynamics and Quantum mechanics. You have great freedom in choosing courses and tailoring your own Master’s degree.
You are naturally curious about how the world works and realize that formulating a question can be just as important as finding the answer. You have a good theoretical foundation in both Physics and Mathematics and experience in using it to analyse data or create computer-based models to solve problems. Obviously, you already know the basics of Quantum Physics.
A PhD education is a distinct possibility in your future so you would value coming in close contact with current research and prominent researchers in the field. So, if you are searching for theanswer, a Master’s degree in physics from Uppsala University might be exactly what takes you there.
The programme leads to a Master of Science (120 credits) with Physics as the main field of study. After one year of study it may also be possible to obtain a Master of Science (60 credits).
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university.
Also required is 75 credits in physics.
All applicants need to verify English language proficiency that corresponds to English studies at upper secondary (high school) level in Sweden (“English 6”). This can be done in a number of ways, including through an internationally recognised test such as TOEFL or IELTS, or through previous upper secondary (high school) or university studies.
The minimum test scores are:
- IELTS: an overall mark of 6.5 and no section below 5.5
- TOEFL: Paper-based: Score of 4.5 (scale 1–6) in written test and a total score of 575. Internet-based: Score of 20 (scale 0–30) in written test and a total score of 90
- Cambridge: CAE, CPE
Selection: Students are selected based on:
- a total appraisal of quantity and quality of previous university studies; and
- a statement of purpose (1 page).
Tuition fee-paying students and non-paying students are admitted on the same grounds but in different selection groups.
If you are not a citizen of a European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) country, or Switzerland, you are required to pay application and tuition fees. Fees cover application and tuition only and do not cover accommodation, academic literature or the general cost of living. Read more about fees.
