Physics: Physics and Education
The specialisation Physics and Education 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.
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.
