The Bachelor's programme in the Physics major lasts 6 semesters and leads to the "Bachelor of Science UZH in Physics" (BSc).
The Bachelor's programme is available in three variants:
- as a mono-subject: 180 ECTS in the major subject physics
- with minor subject: 150 ECTS in the physics major, 30 ECTS in the minor programme
- with a major subsidiary subject: 120 ECTS in the physics major, 60 ECTS in the minor programme.
To obtain a Master's degree in physics 90 ECTS credit points are necessary. Optionally, it is possible to study a minor subject for an additional 30 ECTS credits. Successful graduates receive the degree "Master of Science UZH in Physics". The language of the program is English.
In the Master's program, students specialize in a current field of research. The department of physics has four main different areas of research:
The prerequisites for the admission to the doctoral program in physics consist of a Master's degree in Physics. Students who have successfully completed their Master's (or are about to do so) can apply for PhD positions in physics at the University of Zurich. All applicants undergo a rigorous selection procedure.
