The two-year (120 EC) Master's programme Theoretical Physics aims at training young, promising and motivated students to become researchers in theoretical physics.
The programme provides students with a broad overview of methods and topics in theoretical physics and teaches them to work independently in a specific sub-discipline of the field. Students also learn to present and discuss their work both orally and in writing, and to take a critical attitude towards the existing literature.
The Dutch Master's Selection Guide (Keuzegids Masters 2017) ranked Utrecht University's Theoretical Physics programme as the best in the field of Physics in the Netherlands. You can read more about this in this article which is only available in Dutch.
