Special features regarding teachingFor the Physics degree, the Universität Potsdam offers a framework which can be individually designed with small groups, personal contact to the teaching staff and early involvement in research groups. In the fields of Astrophysics and Climate Physics, colleagues from institutes for Astrophysics, Climate Change Research and for Polar and Marine Research are highly involved in teaching on both the Bachelor's as well as Master's levels. The new buildings on the Natural Sciences Campus Golm provide the best conditions for successful academic studies.
Special features regarding the international orientationIf Master’s students from abroad without adequate knowledge of German sit in lectures, exercises or seminars, those classes will be held in English, provided that the German-speaking participants agree.
