at the University of Warsaw
Optics and its related sciences deal with research on the propagation and detection of light and its interaction with matter. Discoveries in the field of optics and photonics have a significant impact on the development of science and technology, which is perfectly demonstrated by the 25 Nobel prizes awarded for this type of achievement.
The University of Warsaw offers a wide range of Master's studies in optics and photonics. They provide a solid foundation in many fields of modern science and the tools students need to become world-class scientists or entrepreneurs.

The University of Warsaw also offers doctoral studies, which last 4 years and end with the submission of a doctoral dissertation. For related research With optics and photonics, studies can be carried out in the field of physical, chemical or mathematical sciences. Education is coordinated by one of two units: the Doctoral School Sciences and Natural Sciences or the Interdisciplinary Doctoral School, where interdisciplinary projects can be carried out.
Education in Doctoral Schools includes, among others, classes in the form of specialist monographic lectures, courses and practices improving skills in the field of conducting didactics at a university, workshops, specialist seminars, research seminars, individual classes with the supervisor and two-day scientific conferences. Some classes are intended to be interdisciplinary in nature. The curriculum at the Doctoral School is largely individualized, and the selection of individual classes specialist is determined by each doctoral student together with the supervisor. All classes related to the topic of the doctorate take place on the Ochota campus in modern, laboratories equipped at the world level, adapted to the needs and challenges of the 21st century.
All students are encouraged to contribute to the life of the academic community of the University of Warsaw. One of the best ways to do this is to join to local student organizations, under which students have the opportunity to take part in interesting research projects giving the possibility of cooperation with PhD students and research staff.
Most of the students involved in optics-related research are up to three academic circles:
Students can also join Choir of the Faculty of Physics, whose performances not only add splendor to the main organized events at the faculty, but which also provides students with a great springboard from everyday struggles with the world of science.
