International Students

We offer a broad variety of research fields in condensed matter physics, such as quantum phenomena of systems in reduced dimensions. Our theoretical groups are leading a national Research Unit on the emergence of thermodynamics in nonequilibrium systems.
The department provides high standards of research and well structured Master and PhD programs, both leading to internationally well recognised degrees.

Master course Advanced Physics

Our new international master program Physics intends to bring prospective students a solid base in general physics, while offering them advanced hands-on research experiences in state-of-the art labs or at the theoretical forefront. Based in a modern, yet charming, science campus, the physics department has an excellent teacher to-student ratio – with us, you are not just a number but can interact closely with the faculty.
The Physics Master program is open to all graduates of Bachelor programs providing a solid foundation in physics with focii on theoretical or experimental physics. The teaching language is English.

Study program overview

Module descriptions

The Master program commences each semester, either in summer (starting in April) or in winter (starting in October). The application deadline is January 15th for the summer term and July 15th for the winter term.
