Admission to the Master of Physics
The prerequisite for admission to the master's program in physics is a bachelor's degree in physics from the TU Dortmund University or another degree in a comparable course of study of at least three years (six semesters). An overall Bachelor grade better than 3.0 must have been achieved. All details are regulated by the Master Access Regulations and the Examination Regulations of the study program (both in German). Please also note the corresponding Amendment Regulation (also in German): the grade limit for access to the Master's degree in physics has now been changed to 2.9, but exceptional decisions in the case of poorer grades are no longer possible.
Enrollment in the Master of Physics
Students of the TU Dortmund University
If you are enrolled in the Bachelor's program at TU Dortmund University, please re-register for the next semester. As soon as you have completed your Bachelor's degree, you can transfer to the Master's degree in Physics using the form "Antrag auf Änderung des Studiums" (Application for Change of Degree) from the Student Secretariat. Please note that in the case of a change of subject from the Bachelor of Medical Physics to the Master of Physics, the transfer cannot be made without prior determination of the requirements to be fulfilled. Contact the Student Advisory Service in time for this purpose.
If you have obtained your Bachelor's degree at another German university, please apply via the online portal of the Registrar's Office. Before you enroll, make sure that you are aware of the necessary requirements for the corresponding Master's program. In principle, it is necessary to clarify whether your first university degree is sufficient in terms of content and quality for admission to the desired master's program. This will be decided in the end by the responsible examination board. After sending the complete enrollment documents to the Student Secretariat, they will be forwarded to the respective examination board. You will be informed in writing about its decision and, in case of admission, you will be enrolled immediately. In order to speed up the application process, we strongly advise all external applicants to contact our Student Advisory Service before submitting their online application in order to clarify whether you meet the necessary requirements, whether there are any conditions to be fulfilled and/or whether achievements can be credited.
Applicants from abroad
Note that special conditions apply to applicants from abroad, especially if the native language is not German. Information on this can be found on the website of the International Office.
