Admission regulations for the new master's program „Data and Computer Science” (previously called Master “Angewandte Informatik”) 

Please note: The master's program “Angewandte Informatik” has been renamed to master's program “Data and Computer Science”, and this name change includes some changes of the content of the master's program.

As part of a major rework of the offered bachelor's and master's programs, the admission regulations for the master's program will also change. In particular, the language of this master's program was changed to English, and thus new rules apply with regard to required competences in Computer Science. In general, a bachelor's degree in Computer Science should be sufficient for admission, but due to the diversity of such programs at the national and international level, admission cannot be guaranteed.

The formal documents are currently being reviewed by the corresponding authorities at the university's legal department, and a positive answer is expected by early December 2021. Because these rules already apply for applications for the summer term 2022, the application portal will not open before mid-December 2021. We believe that this minor delay will avoid unnecessary confusions.

Important documents to prepare for an application

If you are a citizen or permanent resident of Germany or EU/ EEA citizen or international applicant with German university degree, the following general rules apply:

For non-EU applicants with non-German university degrees, the following general rules apply:

As the courses in the master's program are now taught in English, German language proficiency is no longer required. However, proof of knowledge of the English language at level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) has to be proven. Typically, this can be done by either 

  • School reports showing that English has been taken as a school subject continuously in the last four school semesters up to graduation and has been assessed with an average of at least 9.5 grade points or comparable
  • Certificate of Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a total of at least 90 points in Reading, Listening, Speaking, and Writing
