Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Intended learning outcomes

The course will give an introduction to exciting research in physics at IFM. The course serves also as training in writing of a scientific report. At the end of the course the student should

  • get ideas on new research frontiers in the areas of applied physics and material science
  • understand and be able to explain in a well structured and logical concise way topics discussed during the course
  • develop skills in formulating and explaining physical problems using a foreign language

Course content

Defined by the content of the seminar.

Teaching and working methods

The course will feature ten seminars (2 hours each) given by researchers at IFM as well as invited speakers. Groups of three to four student will chose a particular seminar and write a report on the seminar in their chosen profile language (i.e. English for Y1 students,
