The Master Service of the University of Applied Sciences Jena

We are looking forward to your application and wish you good luck and success!

The application takes place exclusively online via our application portal. Depending on the course of study, you will be asked various questions for which you may also have to upload evidence in electronic form (PDF format). 

Important: Therefore, please have all relevant documents regarding your educational background ready in PDF format before you apply electronically via the application portal.

You will then apply with a grade printout that lists a preliminary final grade. The grade will automatically appear on your grade printout once you have passed all module exams and all grades have been posted by the Examinations Office. Students from other universities should contact their respective examination offices.

Important Notes:
a) Check your grade printout in time and make sure that all grades are listed and everything is recognized (e.g. an internship).
b) Also talk to the professors with whom you took the exams about this. Inform them that you want to continue in the Master's program and what documents you need for the application.
c) Also talk to the staff in the relevant examination office about your plans and make every effort to clarify any problems that may exist before the application deadline.

If you apply with a provisional final grade, the final result of the bachelor's degree remains unaffected. Whether your grade gets worse or better will no longer affect the application process.

Here you will find document checklists for consecutive Master's degree programmes.

In addition, you will find a checklist with all documents on the last page of the application for admission to the Master's programme.

On the respective study programme page, under the menu item "Application" and then "Requirements", you will find the valid admission requirements for the respective Master's study programme. The main criterion in all Master's programmes is, among other things, the overall grade of the Bachelor's degree, or the preliminary grade.
