We offer an international Master Course in Astrophysics and Space Physics. The master lasts for two years and all lectures are held in English. The last 8 months are dedicated to working on an original research project leading to a master thesis to be defended in front of a committee. Information on how to get admitted can be found here.


Every year a number of PhD fellowships is offered for enrolling in the PhD in Physics and Astronomy (starting on November 1st of each year). The call is published on the Doctoral School web page. The selection is based on the candidate CV and on an interview. The interviews are typically held between May and June.

The typical cost for hiring a 2-year postdoc is approximately 80 k EUR and 60 k EUR for a 3-year PhD student.
