For the application, please submit your degree certificate along with a transcript of the courses you completed.
In case that the required bachelor's degree cannot be proven at the time of the application (for example when you are about to complete the degree and you are waiting for the final certificate ), you will have to give proof of the study progress so far (transcript of records with temporary grade) and that you are registered for all missing exams. This proof needs to be signed and stamped by the university's examination office. The final documents need to be handed in until the end of the first semester.
For studies in the fields of Computer Science, Education, and Psychology the required grade is 3.0 or better. For studies in any other field, the desired grade is 1,5 or better.

Application Procedure & Selection
The following documents need to be in your application:
- Obligatory: Bachelor’s degree certificate including the final grade and the transcript of records (all courses) you completed.
- Obligatory: Motivation letter (one page) with a focus on the following key topics: Describe potential prior knowledge and experiences with research methods and/or programming. Why do you want to study EduTech? What do you expect from this program? Critically reflect on your prior experiences with designing learning environments and using technologies for teaching and learning.
- Obligatory: Official proof of English language skills (see language requirements).
- Optional: If you have any other relevant degrees, you need proof for them too (certificate + transcript of records).
- Optional: If your bachelor’s degree is not completed yet at the date of application, you will need to give proof of your study progress so far (transcript of records with temporary grade) and further, give proof that you are registered for all missing exams. This proof needs to be signed and stamped by your university’s examination office. The final documents then need to be handed in by the end of the first semester at the latest.
- Optional: a copy of your CV in English or German. The format of the CV can be Europass or any other.
- Highly recommended when applicable – Grading system explanation: When your application gets processed, Saarland University will convert your final grade to the German grading system. Based on this, and to ensure they will correctly process your application, it would be very helpful if you can provide the following information:
- Your final grade, sometimes known as GPA, indicated as a number.
- How the grading system of your university/country works. Namely, is needed to know which are the numeric minimum and passing grades.
If your transcript of records and/or diploma already indicate these 2 pieces of information, that’s enough. If not, it is highly recommended that you include in your application documents a “grading system explanation”. For this, if you can get an official letter from your university where these two above-mentioned elements are clarified, that would be ideal. Otherwise, you can write a document yourself where you explain how the grading system works, how to calculate your final grade, etc. If there’s any website in English or German that explains this, you can also include them. Don’t forget to include any of these two documents (along with translations in German or English, when needed) in your application documents.
Important: All documents must be in English or German language. For any other language, you need to provide a certified translation along with scans of the original documents.
