We offer a wide variety of courses in physics. Most of our courses at the Bachelor's level and all courses at the Master's level are taught in English.

The academic year is divided into an autumn and a spring semester. One semester of full-time studies corresponds to 30 credits. Each semester is divided into two 15-credit periods. Courses of 7.5 credits are either offered during the first or the second part of the period.
