Application Requirements

Master’s Programs in Physics or Astronomy typically admit students who have an academic degree in Physics, Astrophysics or in a similar degree with a focus on physics. Depending on the course specialization, students from more diverse backgrounds, such as Electrical Engineering, or Mathematics may be admitted. 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 and a letter of motivation and sometimes letters of reference. Additionally, you will have to prove your English language abilities with a language certificate.
