Admission to the Master's Degree program in Physics - Academic Year 2015-16
Admission to the Master's Degree program ("Laurea Magistrale") in Physics is unrestricted, but subject to a preliminary verification of the qualifications of the applicant. Rules and istructions for enrollement can be found on the application page of the web portal of the University of Torino.
The deadline for enrollment is December 23, 2014, but you are advised to act early. Classes will start before the end of September.
The first step for enrollment is to register on the web portal of the University of Torino, following the instructions found here. Doing this will give you access to a personal page in the portal ("my-unito"), where you will find further instruction to apply.
The next step is to fill out and send the preliminary admission form. When you have done that, an interview will be arranged, to ascertain your personal preparation. The interview can be held over the internet if necessary.
According to the rules of the Master's Degree in Physics, a minimal curricular knowledge is required. This means that you need to have passed, during your Bachelor's Degree,
- at least 70 ECTs in Physics (or equivalent) courses,
- at least 20 ECTs in Mathematics courses,
with a 10% tolerance (= 7 ECTs) in the field of Physics.
The preliminary admission form ascertains the level of previous (Bachelor) studies and allows individual candidate students to opt for one of the three Curricula offered by the Master's Program in Physics at the University of Torino.
Interested student should send, via e-mail to the address:
the ‘preliminary admission form’, appropriately filled up and complemented by all documents which the student considers useful to attach (e.g., the list of the courses attended in undergraduate programs with ECT weights and marks). A hardcopy of the official degree certificate will later be required to finalize the enrollment.
A Committee formed by Master's Program teachers verifies, during the interview and on the basis of the documentation provided, the qualifications of the candidates in connection with the Curriculum of their choice. In the field of Mathematics the interested students should be acquainted with: geometry, linear algebra, differential and integral calculus with one or more variables, and elements of complex analysis. In Physics, the students are required a good basic knowledge of Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Electromagnetism, non-relativistic Quantum Mechanics, Elements of Atomic and subatomic physics, as well as relevant experience in physics laboratory.
The dates fixed for the admission interview (to be held at the Department of Physics, via Pietro Giuria 1, Torino, or over the internet) for the Academic Year 2015-16, are the following.
Friday, September 18 2015, 10:00 aula A for applications received before September 16.
Friday, October 23 2015,14:00 aula A for applications received before October 21
Friday, December 11 2015, 14:00 aula A for applications received before December 9th.
If an interview over the internet is needed, it must be arranged with the committee: e-mail address and other relevant coordinates should be included in the preliminary admission form.
The formal and definitive enrollment is NOT completed by the preliminary interview but, in case of a successfull outcome, it must be complemented by the procedure illustrated in the application page.
