The SaarLorLux Master's degree programme in Physics, which is jointly organised and run by Saarland University, the University of Lorraine and the University of Luxembourg, is the programme of choice for physics students looking to prepare for an international career. This Master's programme combines high-quality academic training in physics with a strong international focus and enjoys an excellent reputation.

Students on the programme are given the opportunity to actively engage with questions of current research interest. Students work together on research projects and are encouraged to publish the results of their research work. One of the additional benefits of the programme is that students acquire an excellent command of French and important intercultural skills without needing to extend their period of study.

Key research fields in Saarbrücken include the physics of biological systems and quantum physics. Plasma physics and nanophysics are some of the areas covered at the Université de Lorraine, whereas the research teams in Luxembourg are examining, among other things, novel materials for the semiconductor and photovoltaic industries.

The modules and taught courses offered are designed to meet overall programme requirements and combine to provide a complete Master's level education in physics. The programme is structured so that German, French and Luxembourgian students in the same year study together on the same courses. By learning and undertaking research work within this one group, students are in an ideal environment to improve their foreign language and intercultural skills. Students on the SaarLorLux Master's degree programme in Physics also receive mobility grants from the Franco-German University (Deutsch-Französische Hochschule DFH).
