Online application for 2021-22 : from France and most European countries (opens around April 2021) for foreign students, (opens from November to March 2021)

Scholarships : The Graduate School QMAT offers scholarships, however an ADDITIONAL application should be done using this page from February 2021.

Second year admission (M2) :

A selection committee examines the applications for the 2nd year inscription after a complete file has been submitted. Applications can be submitted by :

  • Students who passed their first year (M1) exams at the University of Strasbourg
  • Students who successfully passed the M1 programmes of a French university or engineering school
  • Foreign students who can justify a successful training equivalent to an M1 level, which covers the majority of the subjects listed below under "prerequisites"

Prerequisites M2 :

Solid knowledge of the M1 programme oriented towards subatomic physics. The main subjects include :

  • Special relativity (basics, calculations implying four-vectors)
  • Analytical mechanics, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalisms
  • Quantum mechanics (spin formalism, symmetries, perturbation theory)
  • Electrodynamics (the basics)
  • Introduction to subatomic physics (nuclei and elementary particles)
  • Interaction of radiation with matter (photon absorption, energy loss in matter by charged particles)
  • Numerical Methods and Programming (one programming language and the basics of linux)

The introductory courses will only briefly remind the students about the basic concepts. It is therefore very important for the students to revise the subjects in question beforehand if their knowledge is insufficient or limited. A special lecture course at the very beginning of the semester offers the possibility of verifying and completing the knowledge of the basic concepts.
