Got to attend additional courses? - Here is what you can do!
Most graduates from universities other than RWTH Aachen need to pass additional courses. These courses are part of the standard German-taught Bachelor degree in Physics.
In case you are admitted with the condition to fulfil the additional subjects Theoretical Physics III & IV (Quantum Mechanics & Statistical Physics), you have e.g. the following options:
- Join the Master’s College Physics. This way you will be assisted with your preparations in fulfilling your additional exams. The English-taught courses are specially designed for the M.Sc. Physics program. The preparation courses take place before your M.Sc. degree begins. You will also get help with the organization of your studies and support in finding accommodation.
- If you do not want to join the Master’s College, you can join the regular German-taught Bachelor courses. To join this course you have to prove sufficient proficiency in German (B2 level). At the end of the specific course you will be expected to write an exam, also in German. Please note that these are the standard Bachelor courses held during the regular lecture period. These courses will need to be successfully completed in addition to your Master's courses, however will occur concurrently. In addition to this you won’t be given any assistence with regards to the organization of your studies and or your stay in Germany.
- A third option is to only participate in the additional exams but we do not recommend this due to the very low success rate of previous students.
