Physics and Astronomy: Gravitation, Astro- and Particle Physics Amsterdam

Universiteit van Amsterdam

  • Beschrijving
  • Overzicht

Gravitation, Astro-, and Particle Physics in the Master's programme Physics and Astronomy stands at at the intersection of theoretical physics, experimental (astro)particle physics and astrophysics.


Students benefit from a highly collaborative international research environment. Current research topics include gravitational waves, collider-based particle physics experiments and dark matter detection, and staff is involved in several large international research projects. The GRAPPA track is for ambitious students interested in gravitation, astroparticle and particle physics. You are intrigued by both the subatomic scale (e.g. the Standard Model, particle interactions) and the largest scales (e.g. astrophysical objects, the Universe), and are particularly interested in combining the two to address some of the biggest puzzles in science.

Joint degree programme with VU Amsterdam
GRAPPA is a track in the Master's programme Physics and Astronomy, a joint degree programme of the University of Amsterdam and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Courses are taught at locations of both universities. UvA and VU jointly issue a degree certificate in Physics and Astronomy to graduates. As a Physics and Astronomy student in Amsterdam you benefit from expertise, networks and research projects at both universities and affiliated research institutes.
