Admission requirements: 

Candidates with an undergraduate degree diploma, graduate degree diploma or long-cycle Master’s degree diploma in the following degree programmes: Physics, Medical Physics, Technical Physics may apply for admission.

Admission to studies is based on the final grade on the undergraduate degree, engineer’s diploma and graduate degree diploma.

If the number of candidates is higher than the limit of places, the order of admission will be determined by the place on the ranking list based on the final diploma grade.

The candidate has to submit a relevant medical certificate on the lack of medical contraindications to take up studies in this programme.


The study program includes a small number of basic compulsory subjects and a large group of diploma modules, chosen by a student with the advice of a supervisor. The offer of courses to be selected within the diploma modules is approved annually by the Teaching Council for Physics. The program’s backbone is a set of two blocks: Diploma courses I and Diploma courses II, complemented with master thesis laboratories and seminars, as well as a specialized lecture. Each of the Diploma course blocks is a collection of modules to choose from, including 120 hours of lectures and 120 hours of complementary classes such as conversations. The choice of thesis modules is motivated by the subject of the master's thesis. Depending on the interests, a student can select modules from narrow specialization or covering a relatively wide range of topics. Proposed courses are closely related to scientific activities conducted at the Institute of Physics in theoretical physics, atomic and molecular physics, condensed phase physics, nuclear physics, elementary particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology. They also address issues at the borderline of these branches of physics and physics applications in various fields. The Fundamental and Applied Physics specialization offer can be enlarged and adjusted yearly by lectures and classes proposed by foreign partners.

Career opportunities:
The Master program in Physics at Fundamental and Applied Physics specialization offers a broad selection of courses, covering all the main topics of modern physics. The aim is to prepare graduates for various forms of a career in research institutes, R&D institutes and modern high-tech industry, as well as to continue their education at the PhD level.
