European institutes offering BSc (English medium)

  1. Nov 9, 2011 #1
    I'm an Indian student who is interested in pursuing a life and career in Physics. Recently, I was browsing through the site of the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. But I was disappointed to know what they don't offer Bachelor level courses in English language!

    So I'd like to know of such national research institutes in Europe that offer excellent opportunities, teach in English and are light on the purse. Tough combo, but is there any?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    1. Niels Bohr institute is a research institute and not a degree awarding body.

    2. Most bachelor programmes in the EU outside the UK are held in the native language of the country where the university is located, only few are in English.

    I remember reading here in the forum that there is a bachelor programme offered in English at the university of Leipzig (http://www.uni-leipzig.de/~intphys/index.html [Broken]). There is also Jacobs university in Bremen, but its not affordable without a scholarship.

    Yeah, NBI awards a degree under the University of Copenhagen. Thanks for the help! Will check and post back.

    If going abroad for 3+ years is may not be completely inappropriate to learn the language of the country, anyways. Physics is possibly one of the least demanding fields in terms of language skills.
