The call for application for the course 2019/2021 is now open until 18th January 2019!
NucPhys is a two-year Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters Degree Course in Nuclear Physics. This Course is based on the expertise of a consortium of Spanish Universities (Seville, Autónoma de Madrid, Barcelona, Complutense de Madrid and Salamanca) plus Universities of Caen Basse-Normandie, Padova, and Catania. The programme further benefits from the participation of the associated partners, among others: CERN: European Organization for Nuclear Research (Geneva, Switzerland), CNA: Centro Nacional de Aceleradores (Seville, Spain), CMAM: Centro de Microanalisis de Materiales (Madrid, Spain), CIEMAT: Centro de Investigaciones Energéticas, Medioambientales y Tecnológicas (Madrid, Spain), CSIC: Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (Spain), INFN-LNL: Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro (Legnaro, Italy), HGS-HIRe: Helmholtz Graduate School for Hadron and Ion Research for FAIR (Darmstadt, Germany), GANIL: Grand Acceleateur National d’Ions Lourds (Caen, France), INFN-LNS: Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (Catania, Italy) (includes AOUP: Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria Policlinico di Catania), CNRS-In2p3-LPC: Centre National pour la Recherche Scientifique- Institut National pour la Physique Nucléaire et des Particules- Laboratoire de Physique Corpusculaire (Caen, France), ENSICAEN: Ecole Nationale Supérieure, (Caen, France), TALENT: Training in Advanced Low Energy Nuclear Theory (EU-USA), HVM: Hospital Virgen Macarena (Sevilla, Spain), CETIR: Image Diagnostic Company (Barcelona, Spain), ARCHADE: Advanced Resource Center for HADrontherapy in Europe (Caen, France),INFN-LNF Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati (Rome, Italy),
Students of NucPhys will be trained in basic nuclear physics and technology, safety and radiation protection. The Master addresses the integration of students in the industry and other institutions (i.e. hospitals), and seeks to bring young researchers into Euratom-supported research projects. Therefore, special attention is devoted to the further implementation, in the nuclear and relevant medical and industrial sectors, of initiatives to attract new talent in the nuclear field and develop competences and expertise beyond the academic curricula.
LANGUAGE AND ADMISSION POLICIES
Courses will be taught in English. Intensive tutoring of Master students will be assured during the whole course of their Master studies. Also, English will be the language of choice for tutoring and examinations. However, students will have access to language courses within each of the partner Universities. Up to twenty-five students can be involved in the programme for each cycle of Master. Admission criteria include a Bachelor’s degree in physical sciences or an equivalent degree (180 ECTS) and depends mainly on academic qualifications. Admitted students will be required to sign a Student Agreement.
NUPHYS was awarded with the European Master mention, and the UE funs up to 16 fellowships that cover tuition, travel and accomodation expenses.
