The Institute for Theoretical Physics and the Spinoza Institute in Utrecht rank 
among the leading institutions in the world in the field of theoretical 
physics. The Utrecht Summer School in Theoretical Physics offers a blend of 
advanced undergraduate material in thermal and statistical physics, quantum 
mechanics and electrodynamics. A computer project is also part of the 
coursework for the Summer School. In addition there is a lecture series by 
Utrecht researchers on current topics in various fields of theoretical physics 
ranging from condensed matter to high-energy physics and quantum gravity.
