Why not study physics in Göttingen, the city that creates knowledge.

This page is aimed at all those seeking advice who are asking themselves one or more of the following questions:

  • You want to study something mathematical or scientific, but you're not sure if physics is right for you?
  • You want to study physics but don't know where to study yet?
  • Are you already studying physics but want to change university?
  • Are you interested in a Master's degree in physics, but don't know where to study yet?
  • Are you already interested in a specific degree programme in physics and would like more information?

Degree programmes

At the Faculty of Physics, you can choose between a consecutive Bachelor's/Master's programme in physics and the teacher training programme (Gymnasien) with physics as a subject. After completing the Master's programme, the faculty, as a renowned research institution, offers the opportunity to do a doctorate in many subject disciplines. In addition, we offer a combined Master's/PhD programme Matter to Life together with the Universities of Heidelberg and Munich.
