Hold a Bachelor degree in Physics, Astronomy, Astrophysics, or Mathematics (or a recognized Degree that certifies an equivalent amount of learning in the same field, quantified as 3 years of previous studies corresponding to at least 180 credits in the European Credit Transfer System) or expect to obtain it latest by August of the starting year of the Masters Course (i.e. by August 2017 for the course starting in October 2017);
Have a good and certified knowledge of the English language (the certification is not necessary for native speakers). Check the list of accepted tests and scores (see: How to apply).
All students that come from a country of the European Union or an EEA-EFTA State (Iceland, Norway, and Liechtenstein), students coming from Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey, or students that either are residents or have carried out their main activity (study, work, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last 5 years (as of the application deadline) in one of these countries ("12-months-rule") can apply for a scholarship in the category "Programme Country" (i.e. European students, old Category B).
