More information 


In the Physics MSc course, we offer comprehensive knowledge. Those skills
and subject groups such as Modern Physics, Optics and Laser Physics, Physics
of Quantum Systems, Atomic and Molecular Physics encompass the science of
the main areas of Physics based on the bachelor’s level of Physics. Practical
courses and seminars provide students with hands-on skills.
The seminars and practical courses outnumber the number of lectures in the
curriculum. This is a good reflection of our preference for learning methods
based upon active student participation. We encourage students’ activity with
homework, self-project tasks, and we support cooperative learning methods. The
subjects of Quantum Systems and Laser Physics are closely related to the
important research areas of the Institute of Physics.
Courses create a foundation for writing theses related to Quantum-Optics,
Quantum Informatics, Laser Physics, and Nonlinear Optics and Terahertz
Physics subjects and for student research work. Furthermore, students are
prepared to enter a doctoral program. A variety of elective and optional courses
allow students to deepen their knowledge in subjects that correspond to their
individual interests.

Programme structure

Altogether 120 credits are required to obtain a degree. Out of the 120 credits,
obligatory courses take 60% of it. Elective courses and Facultative courses take
out the rest of it. Approximately 20 credits of elective ones and 6 credits of
Facultative (Optional) ones. Thesis consultation and Thesis writing worths
another 30 credits and it is combined into the curriculum. From the third year, it
is required to choose a speciality within the Physics Study Field. Further,
detailed information can be found here:

At the Faculty of Sciences, the education is provided in a system of seminars,
laboratoris and lectures. Lectures are held for bigger audiences, sometimes
combined for similar sciences field together. At the end of the semester students
have to pass written or oral examinations. Seminars are usually more informal
study groups for a smaler group of students, where there is room for individual
consultation, discussion of the material and solving exercises. They usually
conclude with an independently written paper or an examination.

The grading system generally used by Hungarian higher education institutions is
the following:
•The highest grade is 5 excellent.
•Grade 4 is good.
•Grade 3 is satisfactory.
•Grade 2 is a pass.
•Grade 1 is a fail – the course must be repeated.

The minimum amount of credits to be collected in every semester is 18.
