ETH Zurich Physics or HEP? Or something else?

  • #1
Hello everyone,
I'm soon going to be done with my bachelor's degree, so I am looking for masters to apply to. I am quite interested in pursuing a career in theoretical physics with an interest in particle physics and cosmology. One such master's degree that caught my attention is the degree in high energy physics offered jointly by ETH Zurich and Ecole Polytechnique. My question is, is this masters degree worth it for my interests, especially over ETH's degree in physics, where I will be in one city for 1.5 year vs 2 cities for 2 years? And is ETH worth it in general, supposing that I have the money for it? (yeah, ignore the financial aspect for now and consider only degree quality)


Other master's degrees I've looked into are the Oxford Mathematical and Theoretical physics master, the University of Geneva masters in physics and University of Utrecht master's in theoretical physics. If there's someone with info/reviews for these masters too, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks to everyone in advance!

All these are good universities, and I would make the decision based on groups you like to join for research.
