The application for our Master's programmes process is organized in four easy steps. The following step-by-step instructions will show you how to apply correctly:

Step 1 Show content
  • Get registered
  • Afterwards you will receive an email confirming the registration.
    In this email you will find your username and a system generated password and attached the Master application manual.
    Upon your first log in you will be asked to change the system generated password. This amendment is mandatory in order to continue with the application.
Step 2 Show content
  • Please inform yourself about the required application documents for the Master's programme you wish to apply for (see the respective study information page).
  • Prepare all required documents, scan them and save each document as one single PDF-file (max. 5 MB).
    Please note that you have to upload your official documents (high school, university and language certificates) in their original language along with an official German or English translation. If the documents are already in English or German, then they do not need to be translated.
  • Please do not send any uploaded application documents as hard copies to us!
  • Please make sure to apply during the correct application period!

Please note: You cannot interrupt or cache your online application. You have to do online application process in one go! Thus, please prepare everything you need BEFORE you log in and apply.
