Application Procedure Information
All master’s degree programmes at Heidelberg University are admission-restricted. The restrictions are set forth in the regulations for admission and can in some cases be met through above-average undergraduate examination results or appropriate professional experience. The application procedure differs from programme to programme.
Consecutive master’s degree programmes
The various consecutive master’s programmes differ in that some are only admission-restricted, while others also have an additional local cap (which limits the number of university places). Still others require a selection interview/test during the admission process. Consult the catalogue of subjects to find out which category your prospective programme falls under.
