Courses of Study and Qualification

A bachelor's degree is achieved after studying a standard period of 6 semesters (3 years), a master’s degree requires a further two years as the standard period of study, with the second year being a phase of increasingly independent research. Around half of those who do a master’s degree in physics then become a "Dr. rer. nat" after a three-year (rather independent) research phase. A habilitation procedure leads to the acquisition of the license to teach at universities.
