Meet all physics programs in one day!


On this page you can find all information about the National Physics Master’s Open Day that will take place on Saturday, March 6, 2021. This year’s edition of the Master’s Open Day will take place online on in two time slots (10:15 – 12:00 and 13:00 – 14:45) due to the COVID-19 virus.

Important to know:

  • The link to the Gather room will be send at 10:00 for participants during the first time slot. In case you have registered for the second time slot, you will receive an email at 12:45. If you have not received an email at those times, send us an email at
  • It might be the case that not all master specializations are present during every time slot. This is communicated on this page and the Education programs page.

Note: to use the platform, one needs a computer with a supported browser. Google Chrome, FireFox or Microsoft Edge are supported for sure. It is also possible to use a beta version on phone, however not all functionalities may work. To see if it works, you can start a demo session on

At it is possible to ‘walk’ through the event with your own avatar. And just as at the physical fair, you can visit the different master specializations at the fair, view the posters and talk to students through video chat. In addition, it is also possible to download the brochures of the study programs in pdf and to view the websites of the relevant university or study program.

Furthermore, there will be a room where prof. dr. W.J.P. Beenakker will give an opening speech at the beginning of each time slot to welcome everyone.
