Small group sizes and an excellent student-teacher ratio ensure individual mentoring and well-grounded learning progress. The MAINZ Graduate School of Materials Science and the PRISMA Cluster of Excellence offer regular summer schools, seminars, and research internships. The global network of partner universities opens up international career paths in physics.
