MSc Physics (EuroMasters) Elective Modules

MSc Physics (Euromasters)


Compulsory/core modules are in bold text, while all other modules are elective.

All modules are worth 15 credits unless stated otherwise. A Euromasters degree consists of a total of 240 credits.

The MSc Physics (Euromasters) programme spans two academic years and offers various study pathways, including Theoretical Physics, Particle Physics, and Astrophysics. We have created module supplement websites to display the required modules for each of these pathways.

Alternatively, students can choose a flexible study route that doesn't follow a specific stream.
