Masters in theoretical physics/high energy physics

  1. Mar 10, 2014 #1
    I am an undergraduate senior with physics major. I am searching for masters programme in HEP/Theoretical physics (in Europe but not in U.K). So far I have found these programs
    1. (LMU) http://www.theorie.physik.uni-muenchen.de/TMP/about_us/index.html
    2. (ETH+EP) http://hep.polytechnique.edu/home/admission/apply-at-ethz/

    It would help me if I can get to know about more such programs where I can, now, apply.

    Also, I would like to know my chances in getting into these programs.

    GPA = 7.9/10
    PGRE = 980
    One summer research in Quantum Information (no publication). Currently I am working on my thesis (in CMP).

    Most big universities should have theoretical high-energy physics master programmes - sometimes they just have a more general name.

    LMU is certainly a good university, Heidelberg has a large HEP community (both experimental and theoretical), Karlsruhe, Dortmund, Hamburg and Jena could be interesting (just to name a few that came to my mind), and here is a long list of all institutes.
    That is just Germany ;).
