Since earning the career title of physicist usually requires students to further their education by completing a doctoral degree, many students are left wondering what careers are available with a master’s in physics. Unlike some of the other scientific fields, physics is a very flexible degree that does not directly prepare students for any specific employment options after graduation unless there is a Ph.D. in hand. That being said, graduates with a Master Degree in Physics could become a Data Scientist, Machine Learning Engineer, Computer Programmer, and many more

The China Student Visa is categorized into 2 major main types, known as X1 and X2. Usually, most international students get confused here but here is the difference. The X1 student visa is issued to students whose study with Universities irrespective of their course and also covering a duration longer than 6 months (up to 360 days). International students will get the X2 student visa if their intended time of stay is less than 6 months (<180 days).
