General requirements


Nearly all master’s programs (exept Medical Technical Systems, Renewable Energy and E-Mobility - 4 Semester, Simulation and System Design - 4 Semester and Tourism Development Strategies) 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.

Requirements

Voraussetzung für die Zulassung zum konsekutiven Masterstudium ist ein abgeschlossenes grundständiges Studium, in der Regel ein einschlägiger Bachelorabschluss.

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.
