Second Degree (Zweitstudium)

You are a Zweitstudium applicant if at the time of the application deadline (summer term: 15 January, winter term: 15 July) you are holding an academic degree (B.A., Diplom, M.A., state examination, Ph.D.) conferred upon you by a German university (or a Fachhochschule).

The application procedure for a second degree programme is the same as for the first one. However, for restricted-admission programmes it is recommended to submit the application at least four weeks prior to the given deadline; you need to attach a certified copy of your first degree certificate as well as a detailed statement explaining your motivation; special selection criteria will be applied.
