Master of Science in Physics

The programme is a 2-year Masters course of 120 ECTS starting every month of September.

The first year consists of lectures, seminars, and laboratory classes, whereas the complete second year is exclusively spend on your research project.

The number at the end of every module line in the ECTS column corresponds to the minimum number of ECTS required for each module. The lectures which are listed under modules 1.8 and 2.8 are examples for elective courses. Any course at UL which is graded and for which ECTS points are awarded can be chosen as an elective course. Students must acquire at least 4 ECTS via elective course(s). This can be accomplished e.g. by passing one course of 4 ECTS, or two courses of 2 ECTS each, etc.
