Why study for a Master's degree?

A Master’s degree programme – generally a two-year course, both at Goethe University and elsewhere in Germany – enables you to expand and deepen the knowledge you have gained at undergraduate level. A Master’s degree provides in-depth education which will enable you either to enter the professional job market or to continue studying towards the next level of academic degree: a PhD.

To qualify for admission to a Master’s programme at Goethe University, you must have already completed a Bachelor’s degree (or another programme at an equivalent level) in a relevant field, and have passed the selection process of the respective programme.

Please check which Master degree programme you are interested in and whether you meet the application requirements, such as language skills, academic background, etc.

Within the Goethe Goes Global Programme, scholarships can only be awarded to the following Master's programmes:
