TMP master program at Ludwig Maximilians

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everybody,

My name is Daniel. I´m about to finish my bachelor degree in physics and, recently, I have being flirting with the idea of studying abroad. I got particularly interested in the elite master program of theoretical physics and mathematics at the Ludwig Maximilians university, in Munich. I was hoping that some forum member who has previously applied to this program could talk me a bit about her/his experience. In particular, I am concerned about the academic profile one should have before building any expectation (graduate programs from the Bavarian network are sometimes described as particularly selective)


further inf. about the master course is available here: http://www.theorie.physik.uni-muenchen.de/TMP/about_us/index.html

Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

From the LMU website:
Promising applicants will be invited to an interview after which the final decision about admission will be made. This interview can be waved for applicants with exceptionally good grades.

Important note:

Please be aware that the TMP master program shares many of its classes with the MSc programs in http://www.en.physik.uni-muenchen.de/programs/degrees/msc_physics/index.html [Broken] and mathematics. While applying to TMP you might also consider applying to the other programs (both at LMU and TUM) as well as those have different requirements for admission (in particular they do not require strong backgrounds in both physics and mathematics). Application to the other programs does not affect your chances to be admitted to TMP. If you are interested in those programs you have to send separate applications as descibed on the respective web pages.

The formal requirement to enrol in a graduate program leading to a master's degree is a bachelor's degree. We understand that students enrolled in a program leading to a Diplom do not have a bachelor's degree. Thus, for a transitional period, students with a Vordiplom in physics or mathematics (and preferably two more semesters of the Diplomstudiengang) can enrol in the graduate program "Theoretical and Mathematical Physics" under the condition that they complete their bachelor's degree within the first year. The detailed procedure for this is currently being worked out. Some information is availablehttp://www.theorie.physik.uni-muenchen.de/TMP/application/diplomwechsler/index.html [Broken]

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
So there are alternatives.
