Undergraduate diploma (or higher)
• a university Bachelor’s degree(min. length – 180 ECTS) in physics with a good average grade (min. CGPA>60%),
• motivation (skype interview),
• proficiency in English: IELTS ≥6.0, TOEFL ≥85, CEFR ≥C1, or equivalent.
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 (the latter is not applied to those who graduated in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, etc.)
If an applicant does not have any official test, online examination may be organised by KTU.
The Applied Physics programme is oriented to fundamental and applied aspects of physics, forming of new functions on the surfaces of solid bodies using radial, plasma and vacuum high technologies, starting with experimental research and finishing with theoretical computer simulation. The programme provides a possibility to choose a personal set of modules of 30 credits in a desired study field, taking into consideration the nature and need of the work.

Prospects at the labour market and higher than average remuneration
Surveys of the labour market emphasize that specialists with knowledge of high technologies and nanotechnologies, and practical skills, will dominate in the list of the most promising future specialities. According to the data of Research and Higher Education Monitoring and Analysis Centre (MOSTA), the graduates are marketable at the labour market and their remuneration is higher than average in the market.
"I would suggest the studies of Applied Physics for the graduates of secondary school, who like sciences, but are not sure which particular speciality they want to study. Graduates of Applied Physics studies can easily direct their knowledge towards specializations of various areas, even though it might take longer than graduating from the desired speciality." – UAB "Elinta", Director, Vytautas Jokužis.
"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 simulation, 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.
