Dear Applicant

Thank you for your interest in our international Master program at the University of Rostock.
Please read this guide carefully as it will probably answer many questions.

Selection for Master courses will be made by a committee on the basis of your application documents. The Master course  starts in the winter term (October 1st which we recommend) or in the summer term (April 1st).


Admission requirements
