Application

Application

Foreign applicants, applicants with foreign University entrance qualifications and applicants with foreign Bachelor degrees have to submit their application via the International Student Office „Akademisches Auslandsamt“:

Zulassung International

There are different procedures of admission for the different courses of studies:

  • Bachelor of Science Chemistry (Eignungsfeststellungsverfahren)
  • Master of Science Chemistry (Eignungsfeststellungsprüfung)
  • Bachelor of Science Biomolecular Engineering (Eignungsfeststellungsverfahren)
  • Master of Science Biomolecular Engineering (Eignungsfeststellungsprüfung)

Important Information

It is obligatory for you to have at least a basic knowledge of the German language. Almost all lectures and courses are held in German!

There are only very few lectures which are held in English!

 

Eignungsfeststellungsprüfung („Assessment examination“)

In the assessment examination your aptitude is tested in the following criteria:

  • Final degree of your subject-specific and subject-related Bachelor
  • subject-specific qualifications (degrees in Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Mathematics) that you have in your Bachelor
  • you will have to possess subject-specific Credit Points in your Bachelor which ensure that your basic knowledge is sufficient for the study at the TU Darmstadt
  • German language certificate (at least D-SH 2, for further details see AAA)

For further details please check the examination regulations of your course of studies (see the detailed description).

Eignungsfeststellungsverfahren („Assessment procedure“)

In this assessment procedure the following criteria are tested:

  • Final degree of your University Entrance Qualifications („Hochschulzugangsberechtigung“)
  • subject-specific qualifications (degrees in Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Mathematics) that you have in your University Entrance Qualifications
  • German language certificate (at least D-SH 2, for further details see AAA)
  • if existent: Certificates of your in-firm training
  • certificates of extraordinary qualifications (e.g. social commitments, subject-specific/subject-related practical training etc.)
  • letter of motivation
  • possibly an interview („Eignungsgespräch“)

The procedure is divided in two steps.

In step 1 all applicants with a certain amount of points will be accepted for admission.

In step 2, an interview becomes obligatory if you do not fulfill all mentioned criteria and your application reveals that your subject-specific qualifications and/or your in-firm training suggests that you are suitable anyway.

The interview is carried out by two professors who will test your skills in the german language and your fundamental understanding in the course of interest. Afterwards, the two decide whether you are accepted for admission.

Applicants from abroad get the possibility to have the interview via skype to avoid travel expenses.

For further details please check the examination regulations of your course of studies (see the detailed description).

 

I'm looking forward to meet you soon and to welcome you to the Chemistry Department of the TU Darmstadt!
