Licence in Sciences, Technologies, Health, with a major in Physics
Type of course: Physics & Physics - Chemistry


The Licence's degree in Physics (Physics) is designed to provide training in Physics to prepare for careers in engineering (after pursuing and specializing in a Master's degree or engineering school) in all areas of physics.
In addition to the Physics major, the other subjects necessary for the scientific culture or cross-disciplinary skills of future graduates (Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer Science, English) are taught throughout the curriculum.

The Physics-Chemistry pathway, sharing UEs from the Physics and Chemistry licence's degrees, aims at a balanced training in both disciplines, either for careers in materials or process engineering, or for teaching careers.

A compulsory internship is included in the L3S6 curriculum.
The aim of the internship is to discover the professional life envisaged by the student and it can take place in a company, a research laboratory or an educational establishment.
It should last 3 weeks and can be carried out in one block at the end of S6 or in several periods during the year of L3. A written production and/or an oral presentation will be made at the end of the internship.


Prerequisites for enrolment : Bac, Bac + 1, Bac + 2

Required former training

Baccalauréat or equivalent for entry into L1, 60 ECTS validated for entry into L2, 120 ECTS validated for entry into L3

Scientific background recommended (Bac S, STL, STI2D, L1 scientific, etc...)

Admission conditions

In Licence 1, full access to students with a scientific baccalaureate.

In Licence 3, full access to students with 120 ECTS credits acquired at university and in a Physics or Physics/Chemistry licence

Access after advice of a pedagogical commission:

  • Students with a scientific DUT or BTS
  • CPGE students with a certificate of coursework in CPGE showing a proposal from the institution of 120 validated ECTS
  • all other students


At the University of Avignon and Pays de Vaucluse, the pre-registration and registration procedures are done online on the website, see the "Registration" section.
Please note: some courses are only accessible after one or more pre-selection and/or selection stages. Therefore, before registering, you must meet all the conditions for admission.
