If there are doubts about the equivalence of qualifications outside the scope of application of the Basic Law, an expert opinion on the equivalence of the qualifications will be obtained from the secretariat of the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany. A course of study at a German or foreign university is technically relevant if there is sound knowledge of geophysics, physics, and mathematics that largely corresponds to the course content of the bachelor's degree in geophysics at the Westfälische WilhelmsUniversität. Courses in related subjects with a predominantly mathematical/physical orientation (e.g. meteorology, bachelor’s degree in physics, dual bachelor’s degree in “physics/mathematics”) can also be considered relevant upon application by the dean of studies of the physics department or a full-time member of the department commissioned by him/her be recognized if sufficient knowledge of mathematics, physics, and geophysics can be demonstrated. If, in such a case, the acquired knowledge does not fully meet the requirements of the bachelor’s degree in geophysics at the University of Münster, admission can be linked to the obligation to complete an adjustment study, which must also have been completed before starting the master’s thesis.
A final grade of at least "satisfactory" or an ECTS degree of at least "C".

Application Procedure & Selection
The applicant must submit or upload the following application documents:

If no provisional certificate is issued by the university, the transcript of records is sufficient for the time being. The final certificate must be presented upon enrollment in the event of admission.
- Tabular CV.
- Evidence of study and examination achievements (e.g. Transcript of Records).
- If necessary, proof of sufficient English language skills (see language requirements).
