Nearly all master’s programs (exept International Innovation Management, Renewable Energy and E-Mobility - 4 Semester, Simulation and System Design - 4 Semester, Tourism Development Strategies and Unternehmenssteuerrecht) can be started in the winter or summer semester.
The Study and Examinations/International Division checks whether the application documents that have been sent are complete and the formal requirements have been met and sends them on to the Admission Commission of the respective program of study. This then examines the candidate’s suitability for the program and decides on admission. The candidate then receives a written notification per post.
A successfully completed undergraduate degree, usually a bachelor’s degree related to the desired program of study is a prerequisite for admission to a master’s program.
Even if you have not received your final degree certificate by the application deadline, you can still apply for a master’s program with your current transcript of records or proof of ECTS points that you have currently already gained, the preliminary final mark and the expected date of completion. If you receive a study place, you are admitted conditionally.
Access to the degree program might also depend on further requirements that are named in the examination and study regulations of the respective master’s program. Please inform yourself accordingly in good time.
An application for our degree programs is possible via the online application. You can find out which deadline applies to you here.
