Qualification Requirements


Previous Degree

Bachelor's degree (or equivalent).

Required ECTS credits: 180.

Direct access to the master’s degree is given if a bachelor’s degree in physics (acquisition of 180 ECTS points) or in a comparable course or an equivalent domestic or foreign degree (e.g. state examination) as well as the abovementioned skills are proven.

Provisional admission can be granted if at least 150 ECTS points in the bachelor's degree and the abovementioned competencies are proven. In this case, proof of the bachelor’s degree is required by the end of the re-registration period for the 3rd master’s semester.
