Application

When is the application deadline?

Please refer to this page of our website for the deadline.

Which are the application requirements?

An applicant to the European Studies MA must:

  1. Have obtained an undergraduate degree (for example, a BA or in Germany a Magister, Diplom, or Staatsexamen) from an institution of higher education in Germany or elsewhere of at least three years of study. The degree must be in a subject or a combination of subjects relevant for the master's program in the field of humanities, social sciences, law or economics. The applicants must prove that they have completed that course of study as one of the best third of their class.

    If you are not yet in possession of the diploma, a transcript of records and a note of your university indicating the approx. time of completion of your  study will be sufficient for the selection procedure. You will however need to hand in your missing documents once admitted.

    Special information for Chinese applicants:

    If the APS proofs that your degree is a bachelor degree or equivalent to a bachelor/undergraduate degree with the possibility to take part in a German master programme, then the your current APS certificate is sufficient. Else you should contact the APS at your nearest embassy or consulate.



  2.  Have acquired sufficient knowledge of the English language. He or she must provide at least one official document proving his or her knowledge of English to be at Level C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Proof of this is provided either by having studied in an English language program, language study within a course of study, or an English certificate of competence (for example TOEFL). For the required scores go to Application Requirements page.

    You are exempt from providing an English language proficiency report if in your previous education the language of instruction was 100% English (this however needs to be proven by a letter from your university).

    Should you not be in the possession of the English test results but want to start the application process already, it is possible for you to submit the English test score at a later stage. In case of a satisfying application you will receive a limited admission, which will be transferred to a full admission after you have submitted the required document.



  3. Have completed at least 15 CP in statistics or social-scientific methods. If no more than 5 CP are lacking, the applicant is permitted to take part in the selection process. Upon admission, the admission committee will decide about the kind, extent, and time frame of the coursework that needs to be absolved.


  4. Admission to the program is subject to the condition subsequent that proof of an undergraduate degree as prescribed in subsection 1 is provided. 

    However, if you have a degree in other than the above-mentioned areas but wish to apply,  put an emphasis on the application. For the selection process it can be of advantage to you if your resume shows clear evidence of interest in the subject field of European Studies, which can be exemplified in working experiences and internships as well as social and political engagement. Therefore, also the motivation letter plays a crucial role as it lays out your reasons for your application to our programme more clearly. With the help of the motivation letter we are thus best to tell if you will be a suitable candidate for our programme.

Which documents are required?

  1. The application form completely filled in and duly signed.

  2. A notarized copy of the final degree certificate of your studies (undergraduate degree) and of the translation made by an officially recognised translator into German or English language.

  3. Notarized copies of the transcripts or other academic records that give proof of your undergraduate studies including credits and grades achieved in each single subject and of the translations made by an officially recognised translator into German or English.

  4. Notarized copy of high school diploma or similar and, if necessary, translation made by an officially recognised translator into the German or English language.

  5. The original copy of the English language certificate. Only if your previous study programme was entirely taught in English, you can ask for an exemption from this rule.

  6. Please include a Curriculum Vitae.

  7. Please also include a motivation letter.
