Application Procedure

Please submit

  • final degree certificate (please upload this document, too)
  • transcripts of all your prior academic degrees
  • proof of your English language skills
  • a letter of motivation (max. 1 page)
  • a CV (tabular form)
  • school leaving certificate
  • where applicable, evidence of any further degrees (e.g. Master degree, GRE test etc.)

You may also apply even if you won’t finish your prior B.Sc. degree before the application deadline, but will complete it before our study programme starts in October. In this case, you must provide evidence that you have already obtained a minimum of 120 ECTS (or equivalent).

Please note: You may apply without submitting the English language proof and the final degree certificate (in case you’ve finished your prior degree recently and the document is still to be prepared). However, in case you are admitted you will have to present both before enrolment or by the date mentioned in the admission letter respectively.

Once you have completed your online application, it is not necessary to submit any paper documents to the University of Bremen. Only if your application is successful, you will be requested to submit paper documents. In this case, you will receive an admission letter which includes further information in this respect. You can submit the required documents as simple copies. Original documents can be requested at any time for verification of authenticity.

Documents that are not written in German or English must still be submitted together with official translations by a sworn translator.

Further valuable hints can be found in the Master-Portal of the University of Bremen (check their FAQs, too, e.g. for more information on notarizations and translations).
