Physics BSc

Faculty of Natural Sciences (TTK)

The goal of our  Physics BSc and subsequent Master’s program is to prepare for research and development in a wide range of fields. We provide strong background in theoretical and experimental physics, mathematics and programming, while getting you involved in the activity of our international research teams.

Focus areas include quantum physics and technology, field theory, data science, nanotechnology, materials science, quantum optics and photonics, nuclear technologies and medical physics. Students can chose between a Research Physicist specialization, or enter our R&D focussed Applied Physics specialization.

While most of our graduates work as physicists, they often enter fields such as economical modelling or consulting, where  complex analysis and strong modelling skills are required.

Qualification BSc in Physics

Language English

Start September

For our BSc programs general minimum requirements are an eligible highschool degree; document of English language proficiency and successful admission tests, while for our MSc programs an eligible BSc degree is needed. Detailed information on the general admission procedure (deadlines and requirements) can be found on our E-admission page.

Admission procedure:

1. Pre-screening by high school graduation results (or univ. certificate), motivation and recommendation letters (if available).

2.  Admission test in mathematics and physics (online).

3.  If passed, online interview in English  (preparedness, communication, motivation, and attitude).

4. Decision: admission or rejection

You can study at BME with a scholarship or as a self-funded student, by paying tuition fees. Various scholarships help you cover tuition fees and your living expenses during your studies. Successful PhD students may receive additional support from research grants.


Our program includes courses on experimental physics with intensive laboratory exercises, and a strong theoretical physics and mathematics curriculum. It also provides extensive skills in informatics, electronics and measurement techniques. You can specialize as a Physicist or in Applied Physics.
