The following courses are part of study year one.

The course application codes and study periods are valid for the academic year 2021/2022. 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.

Only one of SI2360 and SI1142 can be transferred to the degree.

After consultation with the track guide, 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.

Track, Biomedical Physics (TFYE)

Courses (TFYE)

At least 32,5 credits of the conditionally elective courses has to be studied during (year 1+2) and at least 2 of them has to be among the strongly recommended courses. Several courses are listed as conditionally elective for both year 1 and year 2. This means that the students are free to take these courses during either year, as long as the prerequisites are fulfilled (see course descriptions).

After consultation with the track guide, 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.

The track is changed from Autumn 2021.
