Application Documents

Documents to be submitted

  1. The university entrance qualification (if from abroad): This certificate entitles you to study in Germany. This is usually the school leaving certificate (e.g. Abitur certificate). If your school certificate does not entitle you directly to study in Germany, please upload the certificate of the assessment test at a preparatory college or a university entrance test.
  2. The university degree certificate: This document proves the successful completion of your studies. If you are not sure whether your university degree matches your desired master’s degree in terms of content or topic, please contact the subject advisory service.
    What do I do if I haven't finished my studies yet?
    Your university degree certificate is often not available by the application deadline. In this case, you can apply with a transcript of records and a calculated average grade based on at least 80% of the credit points required for the degree. In the event of admission, enrollment is subject to the condition that the outstanding work must be completed before the start of the master's program (deadline: March 31st for the start of the summer semester or deadline: September 30th for the start of the winter semester). With your university degree certificate, you can prove that you passed the exam in time after enrollment. You will be informed of the deadline for submitting the university degree certificate in the notification of admission. As a rule, the submission deadline is in June for the start of studies for the summer semester and in December for the start of studies for the winter semester.
    Note to Marburg graduates:  Please make sure that your transcript of records shows the average grade and the grading system used (overall grade calculation). You can download the complete Transcript of Records yourself after logging into Marvin via the menu items "My Studies" > "Achievements". Alternatively, the overall grade calculation can also be found in the study and examination regulations for your degree program.
    Special features of a degree from abroad: Please check whether your university is recognized in Germany (status: H+) and whether your degree is equivalent to the undergraduate courses offered in Germany. You can find the relevant information on the Anabin website.
  3. The Transcript of Records: This document serves as proof of the content of your studies. If your university system does not have a transcript of records, please send a comparable document listing the course content you have completed.
  4. Proof of course-specific knowledge and skills (if required): In most cases, this is proof of language skills. You can find out how to prove your language skills on the university language certificates website. Proof of other course-specific knowledge and skills is provided by appropriate certificates.
  5. Documents for the EFV (if required): Additional documents are required for degree programs with EFV (e.g. curriculum vitae, letter of suitability or letter of expectations). You can find more information on the relevant course website.
  6. Proof of German language skills: If you have a German school leaving certificate or a university degree from Germany with German as the language of instruction, then any proof of German from you is not needed. For all other applicants, further information about the required German language skills and the possibility of conditional admission is available on the university German language skills websitе.
