Admission to a master's degree programme is granted centrally by the Admission Office of the University of Vienna. You can find information on the admission requirements in the curriculum.



During the master's programme physics students deepen their general knowledge of physics obtained in their bachelor's studies and, by specialization, are introduced to independent scientific work. The research experience gained in preparing the master's thesis enables the graduates to solve complex problems not only in their chosen area of expertise, but also in a broad range of other occupational activities that comprise nonacademic research institutions, industry, business consultancy, and the financial services sector.


Duration and Scope

The workload for the master's degree in physics is 120 ECTS credits, in which a master's thesis (24 ECTS) and the master's examination (6 ECTS) are included.

The planned duration of study is 4 semesters. This means taking 30 credits each semester, which equals a full time job. It is up to you how many credits you take each semester. If you take longer than 6 semesters to complete your studies, you might have to pay additional fees.
