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 of Mathematics 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.
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.
Are you interested in the processes in your environment? Are you constantly surprised by scientific and technological achievements? Would you like to contribute to development of high technologies? You should choose the studies of Applied Physics. The study programme of Applied Physics is oriented towards theory of mechanical, electromagnetic, optical, quantum phenomena, as well as its application in practice, particularly in the area of high technologies.
Phenomena – quantum, mechanical, electromagnetic, optical, plasma
Objects – nano- and macro-derivatives, solid body, crystals, nano-structures, films
Models – phenomena on the surfaces of micro- and nano-derivatives, processes in the material, interaction of radiation and material
Application – sensors, nanoelectronics, solar cells, high technologies
Partners: Elinta, Leggato, KTU Materials Science Institute, Accel Electronics, Lithuanian Energy Institute, etc.
Guest speakers from Stanford University, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Center of Physical and Technological Sciences, Lithuania
Advantages: students can choose minor studies in Mathematics, Material Science or Informatics.
1-2 semesters can be spent in partner university under Erasmus+ programme or bilateral agreement with credits transfered.

Students have an opportunity to gain hands-on experience and apply learned skills to enchance their career prospects during a 10-week industry internship in any business enterprise or organisation in the world based on Erasmus+, IAESTE, AF Consult, DAAD, etc. programme.
The graduate is in demand from enterprises and organisations to implement research, engineering, expert work in organisations and laboratories that solve
• modern materials science;
• energy power;
• electronics problems.
"I started working at the company "Leggato" as a storekeeper and then climbed my career ladder, only because I acquired a wide range of technical knowledge during the studies of applied physics: starting with acoustics, geometrical optics, strength of materials or computer graphics. The basis of acquired knowledge is enough for successful work, but deeper knowledge of physical phenomena and their application, as well as mathematical calculation or modelling, is necessary for career development. Studies of physics have taught me to find analytical solutions of technical problems. I am glad that studies not only expanded my knowledge horizons, but also created a strong scientific ground. At work, I constantly apply the knowledge, acquired during Bachelor and Master degree studies of applied physics. I could not identify the most significant modules, because all of them were significant and useful." – UAB "Leggato", Manager, Dainius Bernatavičius
