What is this Masters about?

This Masters degree is the branch of science concerned with the nature and properties of matter and energy and enables you to choose from a variety of specialisations. Depending on the university and degree programme, you can focus on applied physics, mathematical physics, astrophysics, engineering physics, or bio- and medical physics. A teaching degree in physics is also possible.


In order to be eligible for a Master of Physics, you need a successfully completed Bachelors degree in Physics and in some cases you will have to go through an admission procedure, which includes an aptitude test. However, each university has different or no requirements at all.

A Master of Physics usually lasts four semesters and includes lectures, practical workshops, research projects, and the completion of an internship.

What careers are open to physicists?

As a physicist, you have a wide range of career opportunities to choose from. You can either conduct research, analyses, or improve and invent new technologies. A physics degree will qualify you for a variety of careers and you can begin working in:

  • Universities and research institutions
  • Automotive industry
  • Aerospace industry
  • Electronics manufacturer
  • Career in law (patent law)
