DescriptionThe MSc programme in Physics at University of Copenhagen takes place at the Niels Bohr Institute which offers an exciting international research community where the latest scientific breakthroughs are created.
During the programme you can work within many different fields of physics, from particle physics to the detection of climate change in Greenland's ice sheet. Theoretical teaching, practical laboratory experiments, projects and your own research will provide you with valuable knowledge of the newest technology and enable you to describe our physical reality through experiments and mathematical models.
Unemployment rates among physicists are low - companies in the public and private sector are looking for candidates with your competences and expertise, for instance as consultants in the oil industry, programmers in the IT business or even as advisors on exchange rates in the financial sector.
You can choose between three specialisations Astrophysics, Bio- and Medical Physics, Geophysics

Career OpportunitiesUnemployment among physics graduates is quite rare indeed and most physicists find work in a variety of settings. These include, but are far from limited to, private and public sector research, finance, programming in the IT industry and oil exploration.
Astrophysicists find employment as teachers or at observatories all over the world. There are job opportunities for biophysicists at hospitals or in the pharmaceutical industry, while geophysicists may work as meteorologists, or as consultants at national maritime agencies, environmental organisations etc.
The private sector has begun to deploy physicists in a more business-oriented context. A good example is how, in finance, physicists are engaged to predict market fluctuations. Some physicists are also employed as programmers in the IT sector as they often have strong programming backgrounds.
