The following courses are part of study year one.

The course application codes and study periods are valid for the academic year 2014/2015. For other academic years, different application codes and study periods may apply.

Specialisations

Track, Theoretical Physics (TFYA)

Courses (TFYA)

At least 25 hp of the conditionally elective courses has to be studied. The listing of conditionally elective courses as belonging to year 1 or year 2 is only indicative. Provided that the students fulfil the prerequisites, the courses can be taken during either year.

After consultation with the programme director, students may choose appropriate courses from all the course lists of the different tracks. It is also possible, after consultation with the programme director, to choose other, non-listed, courses.
