    The two-year programme places a strong emphasis on high quality research training. Students can spend up to 60 percent of their time on research project in the specialisation of their choice.

    The Physics department in Leiden is known for its top-level international research and excellent research groups, both theoretical and experimental, in which you will participate during your research projects. Many master's students obtain their degree with a publication in an international refereed journal. The programme offers a wide choice of individual profiles and has four specialisations: Research in Physics, Physics and Science Based Business, Physics and Science Communication and Society, and Physics and Education. Moreover, the research specialisation has predefined streams for Experimental Physics, Theoretical Physics, Cosmology, as well as a fast 'pre-PhD' stream for continuing with PhD research within the Casimir Research School. In some cases, the programme can be adjusted to suit your personal interests.

    Program requirements

    Language requirements: * IELTS overall band: 6.5 * TOEFL paper based: 570 * TOEFL computer based: 230 * TOEFL internet based: 88 * Dutch students with VWO level English are exempt from this requirement.Academic requirements * A BSc degree in physics.Students holding such degree will directly be admitted to the programme. * For all other students, the Admission Committee will judge the equivalence to this Bachelor of Science degree of their previous training.The admission process may include an interview by the Admissions Committee.Special Entry Requirements by trackResearch in Experimental PhysicsStudents from any university in the Netherlands with a BSc degree in physics or astronomy will be admitted to the programme. For all other (international) candidates, the Board of Admissions will judge the equivalence of their previous training to these BSc degrees. The choice in optional courses in the MSc programme may be limited by the need to adapt the programme to the present knowledge of the candidate.Research in Theoretical Physics Students from any university in the Netherlands with a BSc degree in physics or astronomy will be admitted to the programme. For the specialisation in Theoretical Physics, in-depth knowledge is required of undergraduate courses with theoretical and mathematical emphasis: quantum physics, electrodynamics, statistical physics, and complex analysis. For all other (international) candidates, the Board of Admissions will judge the equivalence of their previous training to these BSc degrees. The choice in optional courses in the MSc programme may be limited by the need to adapt the programme to the present knowledge of the candidate.Physics and Science-Based BusinessStudents from any university in the Netherlands with a BSc degree in physics will be admitted to the programme. For all other (international) candidates, the Board of Admissions will judge the equivalence to this BSc degree of their previous training. Notably, applicants with a major in physics and a minor in a related field, such as astronomy, chemistry or mathematics will be considered.Physics and Communication Students from any university in the Netherlands with a BSc degree in physics will be admitted to the programme. For all other (international) candidates, the Board of Admissions will judge the equivalence to this BSc degree of their previous training. Notably, applicants with a major in physics and a minor in a related field, such as astronomy, chemistry or mathematics will be considered. Fluency in Dutch is required; the MSc-course Science Communication & Society fundamentals will be given in Dutch.Physics and Education Students from any university in the Netherlands with a BSc degree in physics will be admitted to the programme. For all other (international) candidates, the Board of Admissions will judge the equivalence of their previous training to this BSc degree. Notably, applicants with a major in physics will be considered. It is strongly recommended that the BSc programme has included the 10 EC course Learning, Presentation and Communication offered by the Leiden School of Education (ICLON) or an equivalent course.
