Application for a consecutive Master's degree

In principle, a first university degree qualifying for a profession is required for admission to a Master's programme. In addition, admission to the Master's programme can be made dependent on other special admission requirements.

In some departments, an aptitude test is carried out to check the professional and personal aptitude for admission to the Master's programme.

Detailed information can be found in the respective  Master's examination regulations  or can be obtained from the subject-specific student counselling  in the relevant department.

For Master's programmes with limited enrolment, a selection procedure is carried out after checking the professional suitability, provided that more applicants fulfil the admission requirements than there are places available. You can find out from the overview of degree programmes  whether the degree programme you are interested in is a Master's degree programme with or without limited enrolment.

A)    For TUK students:

If you are enrolled in a Bachelor's programme at TUK, you have to apply for a change of programme to the Master's programme within the applicable application deadlines. Further information, in particular about a possible dual enrolment (enrolment in Bachelor and Master programmes) can be found here

B)    For students of other universities:

External applicants for a Master's programme can submit their applications online (please note application deadlines).

In future, the application documents must be submitted digitally.

What must be observed?

  • Submit online application, save and complete application for enrolment,
  • send application by e-mail with all required documents,
  • as one coherent scanned PDF document,
  • with the designation "Last name, First name_Study programme_Application"
  • for study programs of the Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering to the e-mail address studienbuero_mv(at),
  • for all other study programs to the e-mail address studsek-kl(at)

Please refrain from an additional submission by post. We reserve the right to request certified documents/originals on a random basis.

The application must be accompanied by a Bachelor's degree or a provisional overview of subjects and grades, stating the credit points already acquired. 

Whether you have to submit further documents with your application can also be found in the respective Master's Examination Regulations, or you can ask at subject-specific student counselling  in the relevant department.  

According to Sec. 19 para. 3 Higher Education Act and the provisions of the respective Master Examination Regulations or the General Master's Examination Regulations , you may in exceptional cases be admitted to a Master's programme for one semester if only a certain number of credit points are required before you can successfully complete your Bachelor's programme.

It should be noted that in the case of Master's degree programmes with limited enrolment and in the case of Master's degree programmes in biology, the required number of credit points must be completed by the end of the application period.

Foreign applicants for an English-language Master's programme who have acquired the admission requirements abroad (foreign university degree) have to send their application to the International School for Graduate Studies (ISGS)
