Qualification Requirements

Previous Degree

Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in law, computer science, engineering, media studies, or another subject.

If you are still finishing your bachelor's studies or have less than one year of professional experience when applying to the program, it will not impede your application. It is only important that you complete your studies and have one year of professional experience before the beginning of the program.

Work Experience

One year of relevant professional experience.

The professional experience requirement can be fulfilled through various practical activities, including internships and traineeships. For example, German law graduates' practical training (Referendariat) satisfies this requirement. However, if a practical activity constituted a mandatory part of your bachelor's program, it cannot be counted as professional experience. In certain cases, admission can be granted to applicants with professional experience of less than one year. If you are not sure whether your studies or practical experience satisfies the program's admission requirements, please contact the university before submitting the formal application.
