Application Documents

If you have already been admitted to the M.Sc. program in Computer Science at Saarland University, no second application is required. Just send an informal letter stating that you would like to study Visual Computing instead or in addition to it.

In all other cases, please complete the online application form. There you will be asked to provide the main information on your application, and you also need to upload your application files.

The completed application form must be accompanied by the following documents in German, English, or French (translations must be submitted with documents in other languages). These documents should be submitted in pdf-format via the upload interface:

  1. A curriculum vitae highlighting relevant course work, major academic achievements, and prior research experience, including published or communicated research results.
  2. A personal statement explaining the applicant's motivation and reasons for pursuing the M.Sc. in Visual Computing. This point is very important. Please avoid superficial answers and do not exceed two pages.
  3. In addition, applicants are encouraged to supply one or two representative research publications, if any. Please do not include class project reports.
  4. English language certificate (see language requirements).
  5. Academic certificates:
    1. School-leaving certificate giving the right of entry to higher education in the applicant´s home country with individual grades.
    2. Academic transcripts documenting grades.
    3. University degree certificate or diploma indicating the final grade(s)/GPA. Please do not apply if the CGPA of your bachelor's degree is under 75% (academic performance/equivalence to a B. Sc. of Saarland University).

All certificates must be accompanied by an explanation of the grading system. The accuracy of the translation must be confirmed. Original certificates will not be needed until matriculation at the university.

For applicants from the People's Republic of China and from Mongolia: your application will not be accepted without the official certificate of the APS (Akademische Prüfstelle) in China/Mongolia.

Two recommendations are also needed from professors or employers who know you and your work very well. You can either send the recommendations in sealed envelopes you get from the referees or the university will contact and ask them to upload their recommendatiοns.
