  • Duration: 2 year full-time programme / 4 semesters (120 ECTS)
  • Languages: English


  • Individual coaching and courses taught in small groups
  • Internationally renowned professors
  • Full scope from soft matter to solid-state physics
  • Collaboration with industry
  • Involvement in current research activities (two semesters of research)
  • Strong links with the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST)
  • Possibility to spend the second year either in Germany or France (bi-national master)

Our offer

Solid education in theoretical and experimental physics will help you foster autonomous scientific work and build up problem-solving capacities. You will be introduced to current research topics during the four semesters of the masters. The first year consists of lectures, seminars, and laboratory classes, whereas the complete second year is exclusively spend on your research project. You will carry out your research thesis in one of the four clusters of the Physics and Materials Science Research Unit:

  • Magnetic and Multiferroic Materials
  • Soft and Living Matter
  • Photovoltaics and Semiconductor Physics
  • Theory and Materials Modelling



You will be covering the full spectrum of condensed matter physics in a modern and international research environment. Choose your career and study physics in Luxembourg just like Daniel did!


Why study physics in Luxembourg?

Hands-on training in small groups is at the heart of our offer in physics. You will have the opportunity to interact in real time with other students and academics.

You will be studying physics in English at the University of Luxembourg. And you can also further fine tune your language skills taking a semester at partner universities in Germany and/or France to become a binational physics graduate and registering at the University of Luxembourg Language Centre.

Expert academics and industry professionals are by your side from the start to help you find the internship meeting your expectations.

Great career perspectives: pick and choose!

Our training is open to those interested in understanding existing novel materials, developing new ones or teaching physics. Check testimonials on the Masters and the science jobs & teaching positions available.
