High school / secondary education (or higher)
• a senior high school diploma with a good average grade (min. CGPA >60 %),
• maximum 3 years after high school graduation is eligible,
• minimum average grade (CGPA) > 60 % in each entry subject: final exams and Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Russian.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
The documents must be legalised (Apostille)by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country where the documents were issued. This requirement does not apply for the documents issued in the EU and Belarus, Ukraine.
You must take verified copies of the entry qualification documents along with you when you finally go to the university.
The accepted student must bring all notary verified documents which were submitted during the application as well as their originals upon arrival or send before:
International Studies Office
You will also need Police Clearance Certificate (non-criminal record) from all countries you have lived before arriving to Lithuania for more than 6 months. We recommend to take Police Clearance Certificate not earlier than 1 month before departure.
or Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) standardised admission test.
If your previous studies have been fully in English and it is marked on your degree certificate or transcript, or noted in a confirmation from the school which confirms that your studies have been fully in English language, additional English test may not be required.
If an applicant does not have any official test, online examination may be organised by KTU.
Specific requirements for Non-EU applicants:
Maximum gap after high / secondary school or later studies cannot be more than 3 years.
Turkish citizens must upload the following document together with all other documents: Higher Education Examination-Undergraduate Placement Examination (YGS-LYS) examination certificate.
The Materials Physics and Nanotechnology programme is designed for students who have an interest in and an aptitude for both technological sciences and physics. This is a unique bidirectional undergraduate study programme in English. The programme provides students with a fundamental knowledge of physics, an understanding of technologies, technological design, together with problem-solving skills, and is aimed to address the needs of students seeking innovative careers in today’s technological age.
The programme offers specialisations in
- Functional Materials.
Top reasons to study at KTU:
1. As the program emphasizes science, mathematics and technologies, students are well prepared to pursue graduate work in either technological field or physics.
2. Visiting professors from Stanford University, University of Southern Denmark, Tokyo Institute of Technology and experts from industry organize international seminars and workshops to be in touch with global scientific solutions.
3. Besides training laboratories at the faculty, the latest and most advanced equipment installed in KTU science and business valley “Santaka“ is used during the study process.
4. Researches show that in year 2025 the demand for specialists with multidisciplinary knowledge and skills will grow up to 25% in Lithuania, whereas 3,6 million jobs will be created in EU.

“Currently the market provides various materials, distinguished by certain physical, chemical, electric or optical characteristics. Creation of a product raises many challenges, related to the appropriate choice of materials for achievement of the desired result and insurance of competitiveness of the final product. Those challenges can be met most effectively by the graduates of the studies of Materials Science, who contribute to the increase of company’s efficiency and product’s added value.” – Vytautas Narbutas, director of UAB “Elintos matavimo sistemos”.
“University provides wide possibilities for scientific self-expression, which motivates a consistent pursuit of a career. The world constantly presents new challenges, which can be met only by creation of innovative materials, distinguished by new characteristics. Today I can say that it was a right choice and the knowledge, acquired during studies, is very useful at work, which requires constant learning.” – Tomas Tamulevičius, Junior Researcher at KTU Institute of Materials Science.
