Applying to a Master’s in Germany

If you’ve decided to study a Master’s degree at a university in Germany , you will have to gather the right documents to prove that you fit the university requirements. Provide complete personal information, previous qualifications, financial information, and a personal statement.

Before you start collecting all the documents needed to apply to a university in Germany, you will have to either have to check if your qualifications match those requested by the university with an HZB (Hochschulzugangs berechtigung) or attend an entrance examination (if you’re from outside the EU/EEA). After you are cleared of these, you will need to check a certain process, called Numerus Clausus, which is a thorough process of selection.

The final step will be to provide these documents:

  • Certified copy of your previously completed degree;
  • An official translation of the course modules and grades;
  • A passport photo;
  • Copy of your passport;
  • Proof of language proficiency – German (and / or English);
  • A motivation letter;
  • Proof you covered the application fee.

If you want to study one of the numerous programmes in English, offered by German universities, then you should have an IELTS or a TOEFL proficiency test to prove your English language proficiency.

You can now apply with Study portals to your university in Germany. You can apply whenever you want, and it won’t cost you anything.
