Admission & Application

Admission requirements


  • Bachelor of Science degree in Physics.
  • Proficiency in English: TOEFL (IBT) 88, IELTS (academic) 6.0, PTE Academic 61, or level B2 of the CEFR.

You are encouraged to apply early, even if you are still in the process of completing your degree. In this case, please explain in an additional statement which courses and examinations are missing and when you expect to finish. We will then make a preliminary decision on your admission. Note that the enrollment requires a completed B.Sc. degree.

If you hold a degree in a subject closely related to physics, you are also welcome to apply. Be aware that we require knowledge in physics at a level equivalent to a BSc in physics including, for example, quantum theory. You can also demonstrate your knowledge in physics via a GRE physics test result.

If you do not have a certificate of English proficiency, you may apply with a letter from your university certifying that the language of instruction was English. Note that for a student visa for Germany, a TOEFL or IELTS certificate may be mandatory.

Application documents

For the application to our Master of Science Program in Physics, you need the following documents as PDF files. In case of admission, original documents have to be presented for the enrollment. For deciding about your application, we may invite you for an online interview.

  • Short cover letter (500 words), specifying your intended field of specialization.
  • Curriculum Vitae 
  • Certificates of all your university education
  • Transcript of all your university education, providing a list of all grades
  • Proof of proficiency in English (or German)
  • optional: Graduate Record Examination (GRE) physics certificate

You are also asked to provide two names of professors who we may contact for a letter of recommendation. Alternatively you can upload letters of recommendation or ask the professors to submit their letter directly to: Matthias Kleinmann, international.master@physik.uni-siegen.de

Applicants from PR China, Vietnam, and India must apply for a certificate of the Academic Evaluation Center (APS). This is not necessary for application but must be provided at the time of enrollment or already for the German student visa. Please note that it will take a few weeks before the certificate is issued.
