Master's programmes

  • Master of Education

    The prerequisite for enrolment in a Master of Education programme is a subject-relevant bachelor's degree from a German university. The following bachelor's programmes are recognised as "subject-relevant": 

    • undergraduate programmes in every subject in the desired master's degree programme
    • undergraduate programmes in Educational Sciences
    • career orientation work placements as defined in § 12 par. 2 sent. 1 LABG 2009
    • an school-oriented or extracurricular occupational field work placement as defined in § 12 par. 2 sent 2 LABG 2009

    Candidates who have earned their bachelor's degree outside of Germany are not eligible for admission to a Master of Education programme at the University of Münster.

  • Academic-theoretical master's programmes

    If you have earned an undergraduate degree in a programme lasting at least three years, you are eligible to apply for admission to a master's degree programme at the University of Münster. Most master's programmes offered at the University are consecutive programmes, i.e. they build on the knowledge gained in a prior undergraduate programme in the same or related subject. For more information about the content-based requirements of undergraduate degrees, please visit the webpages of the corresponding degree programmes and consult our Study Guide. Whether your undergraduate degree meets the content-based and formal requirements for admission to a master's programme is only assessed after you submit your application.

    Some master's programmes stipulate that applicants hold a bachelor's certificate with a minimum final grade. The minimum grades listed below do not guarantee that an applicant will be granted admission, but simply represent the minimum requirement. Further information on the admission regulations for the corresponding programmes is provided in the Study Guide. The admission regulations also apply to candidates who wish to enrol in a programme at a higher semester. Furthermore, candidates must show that they possess sufficient German language skills.
