This Physics programme at KU Leuven trains you to be fully competent and capable of working in research institutes, corporate environments, or the social profit sector.

Many research positions are available in this field. There are excellent career opportunities in ICT, material research, electronics, consulting, government, banking, social profit sector, and within higher education.More than half the students who obtain a master’s degree in physics eventually start a PhD programme in one of the department’s research groups.

A number of graduates prefer to pursue a second master’s degree.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • For applicants from outside Belgium, comparability of the diploma is not always easily established. Therefore we ask you to upload the following documents with your application:
  •  Scans of transcripts and diplomas are required for all applicants. These documents are sufficient for all applicants from universities that have an exchange agreement with the Faculty of Science of KU Leuven or universities that are in the global top 200 in the most recent Times Higher Education or QS rankings.
  • Additional documentation is required for applicants from other universities as it is impossible for us to reliably assess the comparability. In those cases the admission board will take a positive decision only if supporting information is provided:
  •  a complete list of course titles for which you have obtained a credit should be part of this. Indicate the course size (in ECTS-credits) and the result you obtained, preferably according to the ECTS-scale;
