Update! You can now apply for the Master's in Physics programme with your preferred specialisation, at the time of application. Please refer to the list of Master's programmes, under P for Physics, to find the specific programme to which you wish to apply. Note that if you already applied for this Master's in Physics without a specialisation, your application is still valid and you will still be able to confirm your specialisation for the programme starting in autumn 2013.
What if satisfying your curiosity could become your job? At the Physics department in Lund, you can be curious and creative, and at the same time make a strategic choice for your career. Physicists in Lund are, for example, studying the smallest parts of matter or the interface between living cells and electronics, how to create a cleaner environment and how to cure cancer. At the same time they are satisfying their curiosity.
As a Masterīs student you will become part of a vibrant research community engaged in experiments at large international facilities, state-of-the-art laboratories on site, and cutting-edge theoretical studies.
You begin your studies by taking courses - some of them general, some more specialised. You finish with a Masterīs project, where you spend up to a full year in a research group or outside the university - there are many exciting possibilities among the high-tech industry in the Lund region.
You have a large freedom to find an individualised education, but we have also put together some strong "directions" : Analytical physics, Combustion physics, Mathematical physics, Theoretical physics, Nanophysics, Photonics and lasers, Subatomic physics, Synchrotron radiation physics. To learn more about the different directions, please visit our homepage, where you also can order our "Master's programme" brochure.
