Online Application

Important Note

It is frequently brought to our attention that certain sources state that the application process at the University of Siegen is subject to fees. However, the University of Siegen does not charge processing fees for handling applications for any of its degree programs.

Application Guidelines and FAQ

Beyond the advice given below on this web page, please consult the following documents in case you have specific questions during the application and admission process.

Important remark: We observe that applicants potentially have difficulties to obtain an official language certificate on time, i.e. by Apr. 17, 2021. In this case, we will provisionally accept a confirmation of your registration for an English language exam issued to you by the language test center (i.e. a PDF copy of the official confirmation for the scheduled or postponed test by TOEFL, IELTS, etc.). Please provide this document instead of the official language certificate. After having successfully completed your language exam, you must forward the language certificate to the examination office of the master program by e-mail (master-cs@uni-siegen.de) as soon as possible. The language requirements listed on this website have to be met for you to be granted admission.

You can be assured that even though we are all experiencing difficult times, the University of Siegen will offer you an excellent education. Also, the German health care system is one of the best in the world.

Important remark: The international master program in computer science is a consecutive study program.

Thus, after your application, we will evaluate your transcripts of records in order to ensure that you have the necessary skills and expertise for the master program in one of the two study focus areas (i.e., embedded systems or visual computing). Furthermore, a telephone interview with each shortlisted applicant will clarify any uncertainties about the required skills and expertise for the master program.
