In addition, students must have a good knowledge of the main mathematical tools necessary for learning modern physics, a good knowledge of experimental methodologies and a good level of understanding of classical physics. Moreover they must have basic knowledge of quantum and statistical mechanics, of atomic and subatomic physics and of structure of matter.

Knowledge of the English language is also required at level B1.


Curriculum vitae and documents suitable for ascertaining the requirements must be sent to the Learning and Teaching Committee. If the requirements are not satisfied, the Committee will indicate the knowledge and skills necessary to acquire appropriate preparation. This can be done by attending individual courses of the first-cycle degree in Physics and passing the related exams.
