Online applications are required for all courses of study offered by the Department of Physics:

Applicants of the Bachelor's programs physics and physics plus are also required to take the RWTH Mathematics and Natural Sciences Online Self Assessment and attend the Infoday Physics. Please make note of the scheduled dates for the Pre-Study Information Day as soon as possible.

For the Master courses of study an application process exists in order to review the formal admissions requirements and the professional requirements for admission to Master's studies. Here the knowledge and skills of the background education, usually Bachelor studies, are evaluated in comparison to the demands of Master's studies. All of the Bachelor courses of study in physics at all of the German universities have been reviewed and accepted for adequate technical prerequisites to the Master's in physics. Graduates from other courses of study and other universities should include a transcript and note about the module handbook of their previous studies.

You can find additional information about the application process from the Registrar's Office and our course of study descriptions.
