Eligibility Criteria

The Master's programme Physics and Astronomy is open to:

  • Applicants with an academic Bachelor's degree in (Applied) Physics, Astronomy, or a comparable discipline
  • Applicants with a UvA Bachelor's degree in Beta-gamma with a Physics major

Additional requirements for international students: International applicants must fulfill additional general entry requirements set by the UvA Faculty of Science, regarding academic background, academic average and proficiency in English.

In the case that the Bachelor's is not in Physics/ Astronomy/ Astrophysics, the appropriateness of the level of Phyiscs knowledge of the candidate is subject to the judgement of the GRAPPA Programme Manager.

Course Modules

Together with the programme manager, you will tailor an individual course load with a focus on either theoretical physics, particle physics or astrophysics.

GRAPPA has the following compulsory courses, to give you a solid foundation:

  • General Relativity
  • Particle Cosmology
  • High Energy Astrophysics
  • Particle Physics
  • GRAPPA student seminar
  • Academic skills courses

Besides these core courses, 24 EC is reserved for elective courses to allow you to develop your skills for your research project in the second programme year.

The remaining 12 EC you can freely devote to any other courses that interest you (even outside of physics or astronomy), or to make up for deficiencies.
