For students looking for an extra challenge in addition to their Master's, there are several options.
Honours education is followed on top of your regular Master’s programme and goes beyond the regular curriculum. Honours programmes are available both at faculty and university level. Faculty honours allow for more depth to the subject matter or time to focus on opportunities for personal and professional development within your field. University honours are interdisciplinary programmes in which you will work on various social and academic issues together with students from other disciplines.
For more information on honours programmes at the UU, go to the Honours College website or Instagram.
The Utrecht Summer School in Theoretical Physics offers a blend of advanced undergraduate material in thermal and statistical physics, quantum mechanics and electrodynamics. Students starting the Master's programme in Theoretical Physics are exempted from paying the Summer School course + course materials fee.
