Allgemeine Hochschulreife, Fachgebundene Hochschulreife

Applicants whose native language is not English need to submit a B2 - level certificate (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). Alternatively, a proof of a minimum of 500 hours of English can be provided in form of a transcript of the secondary school certificate or a letter of confirmation from the secondary school.


Aim of the Bachelor of Science course is to acquire fundamental knowledge and methods in physics such that graduates gain a first overview of the scope of physical insight and physics research as well as the application potential. This is achieved in courses of experimental and theoretical physics, in mathematics and in the laboratory; all these courses aim both at fundamental and application relevant knowledge. The obligatory education is complemented by courses that might be chosen either from a topical physics research area or from a non-physics specialization, e.g. in chemistry, information technology or mathematics and might be further supplemented by a German language course.

The study program is completed by a scientific project, the B.Sc. thesis. An indispensable tool of physics is mathematics. Therefore the participation in a bridge course in mathematics is recommended, but is not compulsory. At the beginning of your studies the learning of essential mathematical techniques is supported in courses on mathematical methods by highlighting these techniques by the application to fundamental physics problems.

In graduating in the B.Sc. Physics you acquire fundamental competences in physics, measurement technology and applied mathematics. This guarantees a head start in the job market that presents rapidly changing challenges to graduates. Moreover, the B.Sc. in Physics is the ideal starting point to embark on a M.Sc. program in physics.

The course contents are taught in single, organizationally independent units (modules). Modules contain clearly defined areas of knowledge that have a factual or thematic relationship. Modules might contain various teaching units, e.g. lectures (L), seminars (S) or laboratories (P) and are concluded by a final exam. Modules are rated by their teaching load in credit points (CP); one credit point corresponds to an average teaching load of 30 hours.

There are three basic forms of modules:

  • Compulsory modules: have to be completed by all students
  • Compulsory elective modules of choice: the students can choose from a thematically restricted pool of modules
  • Electives: students can choose them freely.

The B.Sc. course in Physics is concluded with the B.Sc. thesis (12 CP).

The B.Sc. physics program provides the basic knowledge, capabilities and scientific methods for employment in industry and research work in physics or related fields. The graduates have reached a state of knowledge and practice that enables them for further scientific self-education. Traditional fields of physicists employment are for instance microelectronics, scien­tific and medical device construction, fine mechanics, engineering, optics, industrial chemical processing and communication technology. Due to the acquirement of analytical research competences and prob­lem solving strategies during their studies, physicists are often sought for even in areas quite unrelated to physics, e.g. in management consultancies. The successful Bachelor in Physics however, is invited to continue her/his education in the form of master studies in physics or in a related subject.
