Basic eligibility requirements

 A completed Bachelor’s degree, corresponding to a Swedish Bachelor’s degree (180 ECTS), or equivalent academic qualifications from an internationally recognised university. A good knowledge of written and spoken English. Applicants must provide proof of their proficiency in English.

Specific eligibility requirements

Students must have a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) in physics or a physics-related subject, with sufficient theoretical depth, and have obtained good academic results. Documented skills are required in mathematics (differential and integral calculus, linear algebra, differential equations & transforms, and statistics) and physics (classical and quantum mechanics, electromagnetism, waves, geometrical optics). Physics courses corresponding to at least 45 ECTS are required.

Selection process

The selection process is based on a total evaluation of the following selection criteria: university, GPA, course work related to the programme, motivation letter, working experiences and references. The evaluation scale is 1-75. The applicant may get a lower evaluation score if a filled-in program-specific summary sheet is missing from the application documents.

Students from certain 5-year engineering programs at KTH

For students already admitted to some of the 5-year engineering programmes at KTH, specific rules apply provided that the master programme is a specialisation within their 5-year progamme.
