Physics: Physics and Education

The Physics and Education specialisation prepares students for a career in physics teaching and results in the teacher qualification (eerstegraads lesbevoegdheid) required for employment as a teacher in Dutch secondary schools. It is a joint programme offered in collaboration with the Leiden University Graduate School of Teaching (ICLON). The programme consists of a Physics component (60 EC), to be followed during the first year, and an Education component (60 EC; only taught in Dutch), to be followed in the second year.

Physics Programme (60 EC):

Mandatory Courses (15 EC)
Electives (9 EC)
Research Project (36 EC)

Education Programme (60 EC):

Study Plan

At the start of the master’s programme in September, students are required to draw up a complete overview of the courses and projects they are planning to follow in the 2 subsequent academic years. This Master Study Plan needs to be approved by the Study Advisor Physics. To select courses, students need to consult the course list for academic year 2017-2018 (see below),
