The study program of Physics, undergraduate studies, contains all the basic elements relevant for the field of physical sciences, and as such, it is performed at almost all higher education institutions of this type in the world.

Nearly all the elements of the study program, such as the academic title, duration of studies, ECTS, courses names and content, exams, learning outcomes and teacher competencies are in accordance with those in most European higher education institutions.

Furthermore, the curriculum of this program is influenced by the positive experience of those institutions which have successfully implemented the Bologna reform, working in the domain of higher education in physics.

To achieve this compatibility with the corresponding study programs in Europe, a detailed analysis and comparison was performed. The compatibility is made possible by maintaining the enrollment requirements as well as the structure and the content of the program. The quality, contemporary character and the compliance of this study program with corresponding international study programs implemented at foreign higher education institutions is evident.

A comparison of the programs according to main individual groups of subjects shows a significant degree of harmonization, while minimal deviations can be found among elective subject groups. Additionally, many subjects of the proposed and comparable study programs have similar contents, but their names differ to an extent.
