The Master of Fundamental Physics is a prestigious degree that is specifically intended for outstanding French and international students wishing to obtain a first-class education in fundamental physics. Since its founding in 1794, the ENS has played a pivotal role in educating the French academic elite (among them many Nobel laureates, most recently in Physics Claude Cohen-Tannoudji (1997), Albert Fert (2007) and Serge Haroche (2012)).
By choosing this master’s degree, you can be assured of four things:

  • You will be taught by a unique blend of internationally leading researchers from ENS and its four partner institutions.
  • You will benefit from individual tutorials, advice and support from the faculty regarding your choices of courses, research internships and your overall academic future.
  • You will enjoy the exceptional scientific and intellectual spirit embraced by the academic staff members on a day-to-day basis.
  • You will receive the individual attention needed to develop into an independent researcher, whatever career path you ultimately choose to pursue.

Physics research at ENS received an overall A+ ranking (highest ranking) at the 2008 AERES evaluation (French evaluation agency for research and higher education).
Most courses offered in the first and second year of the Masters program are taught in English. Please see ’Programs, courses and calendars’ for more details.
