Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in a subject-related course of study.
Minimum standard period of study: 6 semesters.
A subject is relevant if there is sound knowledge in geophysics, physics, and mathematics that largely corresponds to the content of the bachelor's program in geophysics at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität.
Even courses in neighboring subjects with a predominantly mathematical/physical orientation (e.g. meteorology, bachelor's physics, dual bachelor's degree in "physics/mathematics") can be recognized as relevant by the selection committee upon request if sufficient knowledge in mathematics, physics and geophysics is demonstrated. In such a case, if the knowledge acquired does not fully meet the requirements of the bachelor's program in geophysics at the WWU, the selection committee can link the admission with the obligation to carry out alignment studies, which must also be completed before the topic of the master's thesis is issued.
An applicant does not have access to the master's program in geophysics if he/she has finally failed an examination from the master's program in geophysics or a comparable degree or has failed an examination as part of an additional module in the bachelor's program in geophysics and the module was one that was required to study in the master's program is or a compulsory elective module, in its place no other module can be successfully completed.
A final grade of at least "satisfactory" (up to and including 3.5) or an ECTS degree of at least "C".
