Networking between the Departments of Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Technology promotes an active course of studies beyond subject boundaries.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    There are many ERASMUS agreements between the Faculty of Physics and foreign universities. These can be used for both student and teacher mobility. With a generous credit transfer system for exams taken abroad, the faculty ensures that prospective students can spend time abroad at any time. Furthermore, the Faculty of Physics participates in two international research colleges, and there are further bilateral agreements with foreign universities (Shanghai, Tunis, Wrocław and Aix-Marseille).
