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.

  • Master's programmes (non-teaching)

    If you have earned an undergraduate degree in a programme lasting at least three years, you are eligible to apply for admission in 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 degree programme is only assessed after you submit your completed application in time.

    Some master's degree programmes stipulate that applicants hold a bachelor's certificate with a minimum final grade. The minimum final grade does not guarantee that an applicant will be granted admission, but simply represents a minimum requirement. Further information on the admission requirements for the corresponding programmes is provided in the Study Guide. The admission requirements also apply to candidates who apply in a programme at a higher semester.
