Master in Physics gives you the opportunity to work within a large variation of applied physics. You can work in research fields governing:
Master in Physics offers four different disciplines to choose between:
Each discipline cover different fields of physics. When you start, you will be introduced to the research group relevant to the field you choose and throughout your two years at UiT, you will be work closely with this research group.
You will be working with state-of-the-art equipment and modern techniques for solving research and industrial problems. You will be working with theoretical and practical problems and get an understanding that can be applied to further research or work after completion of study.

Admission to the Master’s programme in Physics requires a Bachelor’s degree in Physics (180 ECTS) or equivalent qualifications. An additional requirement is specialization in physics worth the equivalent of minimum 80 ECTS.
Applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree or equivalent issued in Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand: An average grade C as a minimum requirement.
Applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree or equivalent issued in countries other than the above mentioned region/countries: An average grade B as a minimum requirement.
Students are expected to have skills equivalent to the prerequisites the courses in the study program build upon.

The courses in the study programme have varied forms of instruction, typically lectures, exercises, laboratory work, computer work, or combinations of these.
Special curricula, project papers and the Master's thesis are supervised on an individual basis by the department's academic staff, possibly in collaboration with external companies or institutions by agreement.
Form of assessment varies, but most examinations are portfolio assessments of a take-home exam, project paper or laboratory report, in combination with a final oral or written exam. In some courses, mandatory assignments have to be approved for access to the exam.
After handing in the Master's thesis, it is assessed, and normally within 6 weeks an oral presentation and examination is held, that may influence on the final mark.
Language of instruction is English and all of the syllabus material is in English. Examination questions will be given in English, but may be answered either in English or in a Scandinavian language.
Also the Master's thesis may be written either in English or in a Scandinavian language.
Completed Master's degree studies qualify for admission to PhD-studies in physics, depending on satisfactory marks in the Master's and Bachelor's degree. PhD-studies in physics are offered at UiT The Arctic University of Norway.
Exchange studies abroad or at the University Centre in Svalbard can be recognised in the Master's degree if recommended by your supervisor, and only if the external courses are validated prior to departure. The period of time for the exchange studies depends on the individual educational plan, and should be planned in collaboration with the student advisor and the students supervisor.
