Programs of study


The first two years of the curriculum include a range of maths courses since maths is the physicist’s most important tool. A researcher who is proficient in maths has the best chance of fulfilling his or her dreams: revealing the real — but often hidden — characteristics of natural phenomena, from the infinitely large to the infinitely small.

The tuition fees at UNIGE are 500.- CHF per semester.

Bachelor’s advisor: Prof. Xin Wu
