Master’s College Physics
The Master’s College in M.Sc. Physics is able to offer you the most excellent preparation for the Master’s program in Physics. In addition, social and organisational support is provided for you throughout the Master’s degree program. The Master’s College was developed by the RWTH International Academy in close cooperation with the Department of Physics and complements your Master’s program at the university.
The Master’s College is designed specifically for students who need to fulfill conditions for admission; like for example Quantum Mechanics or Statistical Physics. A Master’s degree program at the RWTH Aachen University requires a very advanced and specialized level of theoretical Physics. To obtain this level, the Master’s College offers bridging courses, German language courses, as well as close scientific guidance, direct involvement in research, and intense social support.
Have a smooth start in Aachen!
Your journey abroad and future studies will may be difficult and complex, but we will support you every step of the way. We will help you with the organization of your trip and support you in all bureaucratic processes.
During the first weeks of your Master’s degree program, plenty of question come up. We guide you through this time. We offer support with e.g. opening a bank account, health insurance or visa extension. During social events, we help to make you feel comfortable in their new environment. In the program, you will immediately get in contact with other students, e.g. at a joint lunch on your first day of the Master’s College.
Fulfill conditions for admission within weeks
The Master’s degree program in Physics at RWTH Aachen University requires a profound knowledge of theoretical physics. Every year, RWTH Aachen University receives numerous applications from high-potential students who, however, do not possess the required undergraduate curriculum. Often, national and international students do not completely fulfill the entrance requirements for M.Sc. Physics as their universities do not have as strong a focus on theoretical Physics as RWTH Aachen University does. The offered courses are part of the German-taught Bachelor degree in Physics. In the Master’s College, you can fulfill these admission requirements in specific courses taught in English some weeks before and during your Master’s program. Moreover, the complementing academic and social support will increase your chances of success.
The International Academy gGmbH, a subsidiary to the university, is highly experienced in supporting international students during their studies at the RWTH. Together, we enable an efficient completion of your Master's degree program in Physics.
