Application Requirements

Since the specializations of the Master degrees in Geography differ broadly, it is important to check with each program, which degree requirements you have to fulfill to be admitted. Programs may ask you to have taken courses in related disciplines, such as Spatial Planning, Geodata Analysis, STEM-Subjects, Economics or others. For most programs, entrance tests or interviews are not part of the admissions process, students must simply submit required documents (first degree certificate and a transcript of records). These typically include your CV and a letter of motivation and sometimes letters of reference. Additionally, you will have to prove your English language abilities with a language certificate.
