Our programs

You want to study physics and know German?

You can apply to our free* Bachelor's program, even after the official application deadline. If you do not speak German, you may be able to attend some classes that are taught in English.


If you know German already but not at the level sufficient for admission (C1 CEFR),  it may be possible to get a conditional program admission.

If you only know English, you can register with a “listener” status and attend some classes that are available in English. There is also a welcome program that can help with the German language for eligible students.

You already have a Bachelor’s degree in physics and speak fluent English (CEFR B2 or higher)?

You can apply to our free* English Master’s program in physics. 

You have a Master’s degree in Physics and have a strong scientific overlap with one of department’s experimental or theoretical research groups? You can apply directly to the PI of that group. 

It is also possible to apply for a temporary “visiting scientist” stipend. This option will allow you to collaborate with our department while maintaining your current affiliation.

You have a research collaboration or a strong thematic overlap with one of the department research groups?

Please contact our experimental and theoretical groups directly. Additionally, there are fellowships you can apply for.
