“I chose to come to Göttingen because they have a research oriented program where I could study particle physics. A great part is that the program is in English, so you can experience Germany without worrying whether your German is good enough to understand your courses.
This also applies to the city, which is very international. The city also has a nice size, it has everything you need, but it is still easy to get around and the city doesn’t feel too crammed.”

R. Riksted, First Semester M.Sc. Physics

Katharina Priebe
“The special feature of Göttingen is the variety of physical subjects. When I started studying physics here, I was sure I would specialize in particle or astrophysics.
During my studies, I had the opportunity to realize that solid-state physics was much more fun. And because of the great research group in this area I’m also doing my PhD here in Göttingen.”

K. Priebe, Graduate Masterstudent in Physics
