Astrophysics and Gravitation is one of the research areas in the Department of Physics at the IST.
Master and PhD Students, having their Dissertations theses in this area of research and working under supervision of staff members, are usually involved in international scientific projects.
Fellowships are often available for the most successful students. Please contact staff members.

Astrophysics and Gravitation - from passion to science
A specialization is astrophysics and gravitation requires the student to attend a total of 120 ECTS, 30 ECTS per Semester. The 4th semester is totally devoted to the MSC thesis (30 ECTS).
The courses are of different types, namely:
- courses common to all MEFT students
- courses that are common to the Physics branch within MEFT
- courses optional in the branch

Tuition of the courses is in english, whenever there is at least one foreign student.

Information for international and students from portuguese universities
As part of its strategic policy, IST is actively involved in several networks and international programmes to promote student mobility, both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as internships for participating in IST’s research activities. More information >>
Prepare your studies programme in AG
Students applying for a mobility programme (ERASMUS, etc) or just looking for a MSc supervidor are invited to contact Staff members, Professors or researchers working in the field of AG.
In case you are at a Portuguese University you might be interested in the Almeida Garrett program.
