Bachelor degrees in Physics can be accepted..
Additionally, Bachelor degrees in the fields of Chemistry, Environmental Science, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Material Engineering, Computer Science Engineering and Mathematics can be accepted, if the applicant has at least 65 ECTS credits in the following fields:
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
You must take the original entry qualification documents along with you when you finally go to the university.
An internationally accredited language examination is required with at least a B2 CEFR level or equivalent result.
Examples of minimum level accepted:
Alternatively, an official certificate issued by the applicant’s previous higher education institution can be accepted, stating that the applicant’s previous education (Bachelor’s degree) was completed entirely in English.
A motivation letter must be added to your application.
The goal of this program is to train professional physicists who have a broad overview of contemporary physics and are able to join research on their specialized fields.
This program is recommended to applicants who already have their BSc in physics and want to be research physicists by deepening their knowledge.
This program enables students to have broad background in the major fields of physics (atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter physics, nuclear physics, particle physics, statistical physics) and being specialized in selected areas (astrophysics, atomic and molecular physics, nuclear and heavy ion physics, biophysics, condensed matter physics, computational physics, environmental physics, particle physics, statistical physics and complex system).
Type of entrance exam:
oral and written

Specialisation year available:
The Physics MSc program offers both the development of a broad background in the major fields of physics (atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter physics, nuclear physics, particle physics, statistical physics), and the specialization in selected areas (atomic and molecular physics, astrophysics, biophysics, condensed matter physics, computational physics, environmental physics, particle physics, statistical physics and complex system). The types of courses taken by the students include lectures, problem-solving courses, student seminars, laboratory work, and a research project supervised by an expert in the field.
•PhD student: a natural continuation of the MSc studies.
•Physicist researcher: successfully completed MSc studies enable one to get a job in a research institute for physics.
•Applied physicist in industry, R&D sector: industrial research and development welcomes young physicists, from automobile/oil/space industry to mobile phone companies.
•Medical physicist: medical centers need professionals who are able to work with high-tech diagnostic devices.
•Physicist in informatics: informatics often needs professionals who know the physical concepts underlying a problem to be solved.
•Physicists in bank sector: the problem solving ability and knowledge of statistical methods enable physicists to work on monetary risk assessment or optimization problems.
