Change of course

The bachelor's degree courses in physics and medical physics are designed in such a way that one can also continue one's studies in the other master's degree course if certain examinations are made up for. This page informs you about the respective requirements, which can alternatively be taken during the bachelor's degree. If you wish to switch between the two specialist courses and the teacher training courses (in both directions), the individual case must be considered. Contact the academic advisory service if you have any questions in these changes.

Change from Bachelor in Physics to Master in Medical Physics

Exam requirements:

  • Theoretical Medicine (10 CP)
  • Medical Physics (12 CP)
  • Clinical internship

Change from Bachelor Medical Physics to Master Physics

Exam requirements:

  • Introduction to Solid State Physics (9 CP)
  • Introduction to Nuclear and Elementary Particle Physics (9 CP)
  • Thermodynamics and Statistics (9 CP)

Please note that it is no longer possible to replace the module Structure of Matter in the Medical Physics Bachelor's degree with Introduction to Solid State Physics and Introduction to Nuclear and Elementary Particle Physics.

Location & approach

The campus of the Technical University of Dortmund is located near the freeway junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerland line A45 crosses the Ruhr expressway B1/A40. The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. The university is signposted at both exits.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on the North Campus. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. In addition, the university can be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr transport association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.



One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.



From Dortmund Airport, it takes just over 20 minutes to get to Dortmund Central Station by AirportExpress and from there to the university by S-Bahn. A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university's train station.
