Admission requirements for a Master programme

Admission to a Master's programme is granted to those who have successfully completed a university degree with a standard period of study of at least six semesters as a general admission requirement.

The examination regulations for the respective Master's programme regulate the programme-related admission requirements, which the examination board decides on. The decision of the examination board is a prerequisite for enrolment.

Special admission requirements

Anyone applying to a university has to familiarise themselves with a very special " official German". Many terms sound similar and yet denote different things. For example, some of our fields of study are designated with an admission limitation or special admission requirements.

Aptitude test (EP) and aptitude assessment test (EFV)

Special admission requirements usually have subjects for which you must prove your aptitude. The aptitude is checked with the help of an aptitude test or an aptitude assessment test. Proof of successful participation is part of your application to the University of Erfurt. The application deadline for the following subjects is 30 September of the year in which you wish to begin your studies.

We have special admission requirements for the study programmes Art, Music Education and Mediation, Physical Education and Communication Science.
