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.

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.
The facilities of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent "Technologiepark".Zum Lageplan
