Master's Programs in Physics. STUDY NATURAL SCIENCES IN THE UK Across The Pond partners with some of the top UK universities for Natural Sciences, across a variety of disciplines. The UK has long been a major contributor to the innovation of energy, including biology, chemistry, earth sciences, oceanography and physics, and students who study in the UK benefit from intensive learning, opportunities to find placements at major companies, and a concentration on both academic skill and employability. BENEFITS OF STUDYING NATURAL SCIENCES IN THE UK Shorter courses: Most Master’s programs are only one year long. Students can obtain a degree in a shorter amount of time compared to studying in Latin America. Funding from Latin American countries for these subjects is also available. Focus: UK universities do not require general education courses; students will be focusing on Natural Sciences from Day 1! Employment opportunities: Many unis in the UK focus on having staff that are active in their fields, helping to provide an employability perspective and to generate learning opportunities outside of the classroom. Furthermore, many courses offer the opportunity to take on a placement, whether as an additional year on their degree, or as a short-term opportunity during their degree. Either way, UK Natural Sciences students graduate with readiness to work. HOW CAN ACROSS THE POND HELP? We provide  free advice & guidance  to students wanting to pursue engineering in the UK.

The Master`s College in M.Sc. Physics is able to offer the most excellent preparation for the Master`s degree programme in Physics at the RWTH Aachen University. [+]

Master's Programs in Physics. The Master`s College in M.Sc. Physics is able to offer the most excellent preparation for the Master`s degree programme in Physics. In addition, social and organisational support is provided throughout the Master`s degree programme. The Master's College was developed by the RWTH International Academy in close cooperation with the Physics Institute and complements the Master's degree programme at the university. The Master's College is designed specifically for students who need to fulfil conditions for admission. A Master’s degree programme at the RWTH Aachen University requires a very advanced and specialized level of theoretical Physics. To obtain this level, the Master's College offers bridging courses, German language courses, as well as close scientific guidance, direct involvement in research, and intense social support. During the first weeks of the Master`s degree programme, plenty of question come up. We guide our students through this difficult time. We offer support with all bureaucratic processes, e.g. opening a bank account or visa extension. During social events, we help to make our students feel comfortable in their new environment. The Master's programme in Physics at RWTH Aachen University requires a profound knowledge of theoretical physics. Every year, RWTH Aachen University receives numerous applications from high-potential students who, however, do not possess the required undergraduate curriculum. Often, national and international students do not completely fulfill the entrance requirements for M.Sc. Physics as their universities do not have as strong a focus on theoretical Physics as the RWTH Aachen does. To these students specifically,... [-]

Master's Degree in Advanced Physics and Applied Mathematics (MFMA)

Universidad de las Islas Baleares - UIB
Campus Full time October 2017 Spain Palma de Mallorca

The objective of the University Master in Advanced Physics and Applied Mathematics (FAMA) is to provide an advanced training, specially oriented to graduate students aiming to enter later in a Doctorate program. [+]

What is it? The objective of the University Master in Advanced Physics and Applied Mathematics (FAMA) is to provide an advanced training, specially oriented to graduate students aiming to enter later in a Doctorate program. It is then a Master basically oriented towards research. This requires a structure making possible the specialization in some research areas with a premium quality. The UIB is awarded with the mention of International Excellence Campus, including the line of Physics, Computing and Applications. In this line, there are some research groups that have been developing an internationallevel first rank task during years. This is why five specialties are offered, directly related with those groups: Relativity and Astrophysics, Geophysical Fluids, Materials Physics, Quantum Systems , and Applied Mathematics. Most of the socially relevant problems have many faces, and addressing them requires both general vision and the ability to connect ideas. In this context, the Master is not offering specialties as watertight compartments. The student can rather choose a reasonable number of complementary credits coming from other specialties, different from the selected one. What will you learn During the past century, scientific research has reached a high degree of specialization, with a refined division of the subjects of study. On the other side, most of the problems which are socially relevant are polifacetic. The scientist with a multidisciplinary background is in good position for developping his research tasks beyond the borders of his own domain, being able to collaborate with researchers from other disciplines and providing...

Physics aims to observe and explain the behaviour of the physical universe. In particular, physics looks for basic laws, which account for and predict what can be observed. Part of the appeal of the subject is that the physical world is governed by remarkably few such laws and that these apply everywhere and to everything. The structure of the courses reflects the structure of the subject. All students take the core modules and choose further modules from the lists of options. The core modules introduce the fundamental principles, while the optional modules explore their applications in the different areas of physics including: astrophysics, the properties of matter, particle physics and atmospheric physics. The option scheme also allows a proportion of modules to be taken from outside of physics. We encourage students not only to consider modules related to physics, for example in computing, but also modules in philosophy and modern languages. Please download the course booklet for more information. Below is a list of the individual modules in each year and more detail on their content can be found by following the links above. THE FOUR-YEAR DEGREE COURSE (MPhys) Students can opt for the four-year version of the degree. This has been designed primarily for students who are thinking of a career which makes substantial use of their knowledge of Physics. The first two years are the same as for the BSc.
