Master’s degree programmesMaster’s degree programmes with access restrictions in higher semesters
In each case, the restrictions for consecutive Master’s degree programmes are stipulated in the admission regulations for the relevant subject. Restrictions might require for example, that students have successfully completed an undergraduate degree programme and achieved an above-average grade. The access procedures differ by Master’s programme as well as by nationality of the prospective student and university where the undergraduate degree was acquired.
Please note that applicants with multiple nationalities, including German, will be subject to the procedures for German citizens!
