New MS programme in Theoretical physics

The University of Iceland offers New Master Programme in Theoretical physics. The programme is a collaboration between the Department of Physics at the University of Iceland, and the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics. The programme is offered in English.

The programme aims to provide students with up-to-date knowledge of contemporary physics in the main areas of astrophysics, condensed matter physics and highenergy physics, as well as solid training in applying mathematical and numerical tools widely used in these fields. The programme also offers a course to develop professional skills such as writing and presenting scientific content.

Nordita is the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics. Its purpose is to carry out research and strengthen Nordic collaboration within theoretical physics. Nordita has traditionally
provided training for graduate students as well as junior scientists.

The Faculty of Physical Sciences and the Science Institute within the University of Iceland are the leading research institutions in Iceland in the Physical Sciences. Research in experimental and
theoretical physics is carried within the Mathematics and Physics Divisions of the Science Institute at the UoI. Staff members at both divisions will be involved in teaching as well as supervising projects within the MSc programme
