Information on the master's application

To obtain a place on a Master's degree programme, an application is necessary. The exact modalities may differ depending on the degree programme. Most Master's programmes are designed to be consecutive and build on the content of certain Bachelor's programmes. You can find information on this in the examination regulations under admission requirements.

Degrees from other universities are checked for comparability during the application process; sometimes missing content can be made up to a limited extent in the form of requirements at the beginning of the programme. If necessary, it is possible to apply even before receiving the Bachelor's degree certificate. In this case, the certificate must be submitted within a certain period of time. The best way to find out the specific application requirements for your desired Master's programme is to use our programme finder.

Further information on application and enrolment
