Course recognitions

The approved physics courses are outlined below. If you would like to attend courses from other disiplins you need to contact the study administration at Department of physics (e-mail:

Courses taught autumn and spring:

  • PHYS372 Project (Theoretical Physics)
  • PHYS384 Experimental work in Physics (FYS2150)
  • PHYS772 Optics

If a UiO course code is paranthesed behind a course code from UofS this means that a student cannot partake in both courses without there being a subtraction of ECTS due to an overlap in the course work. Also if there is no overlap between courses from UiO and UofS a course code starting with 3 will count as a course on bachelor level, whereas a course starting with 7 will be counted as a course on master level.
