MASTER’S DEGREE PROGRAMMEStarting in an Advanced Academic Semester
The exact nature of the application and admission process for entry to an advanced academic semester in a Master’s degree programme will depend on your chosen subject and your nationality.
Please find out in advance whether your desired subject is admission restricted beyond the first semester at Heidelberg University.
MASTER’S DEGREE PROGRAMMES
A Master’s degree programme is an additional academic course which is generally undertaken following the successful completion of a Bachelor’s degree programme. Other undergraduate courses however, can also prepare students to begin a Master’s-level programme. A Master’s degree programme generally consists in four academic semesters. In some cases, courses may run for a total of two or three semesters. Graduates of a Master’s degree programme will usually receive a Master of Science (M.Sc) or a Master of Arts (M.A).
Master’s degree programmes with admission restrictions beyond the first academic semester
All Master’s degree programmes at Heidelberg University are access-restricted. Some Master’s degree programmes are also subject to admission restrictions for entry to advanced academic semesters.

Becoming a teacher (Master’s phase)
The degree programme for the Master of Education (M. Ed.) is run by Heidelberg University in collaboration with the Heidelberg University of Education (Pädagogische Hochschule Heidelberg) as a joint venture within the Heidelberg School of Education (HSE).
