Program in Physical Sciences

Admission Guidelines

To apply to the program, please provide the following documents:

  • Curriculum Vitae (CV): Include details of your physics background such as education, publications, research experience, participation in science programs and Olympiads, and physics GRE scores if available.


  • B.Sc. transcript with grades: Applicants must be enrolled in or have completed a physics undergraduate program and should have demonstrated excellence in their studies. Exceptional students from related fields within the exact sciences, such as engineering or mathematics, are also encouraged to apply.


  • Personal statement: Applicants who feel their grade average does not fully reflect their abilities are advised to submit a short statement explaining their situation and their potential for success in the M.Sc. program.


  • Recommendation letters: While not mandatory, we strongly recommend submitting meaningful reference letters from faculty members or project supervisors who can attest to your scientific and research abilities.


Based on our evaluation of these documents, you may be invited to an interview with the Board of Studies committee. Those invited for an interview will receive further details about the process and how to prepare.

Application deadline
Application forms can be submitted between November 1, 2023 - May 19, 2024. Late applications (i.e. after the above-mentioned deadlines), are considered in special cases only.
