Application Requirements

Master’s degrees in Materials Science typically admit students who have an academic degree in a related subject such as Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or some engineering degrees. For most programs, entrance tests or interviews are not part of the admission process, students must simply submit required documents (first degree certificate and a transcript of records). These typically include your CV, a letter of motivation and sometimes letters of reference. Additionally, you will have to prove your English language abilities with a language certificate.
