International opportunities for students

The Joint programme in Physics (UNITN-SISSA) is a two-year full-time programme taught in English and is placed to excellently train and develop the careers of the next generation of physicists.

Courses are tailored to cover all aspects of Modern Physics, both theoretical and experimental, from the very basics to the current frontiers of knowledge, and to delve more deeply into particular aspects of the six taught modules offered by SISSA, from Astroparticle Physics to Astrophysics, from Condensed Matter to Statistical Physics, from Molecular and Statistical Biophysics to Theoretical Physics.

Students study during the first academic year at the University of Trento, while during the second academic year students attend the first semester at SISSA and are expected to choose at which institution they will complete their studies according to the purposes of the final thesis.
Students will be required to work on their thesis project developing one of the proposed topics from a list agreed by both the institutions, and will be supervised by a tutor from the institution selected.
