Master entrance requirements

The requirement for admission to the master’s degree program in Chemistry is a bachelor's degree in Chemistry or an equivalent qualification awarded by a university in Germany or abroad. Credits and coursework earned in another first degree program may also be taken into account.

Proof of English language skills at a minimum level of B2 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages is required (documents acknowledged as proof are laid out in JGU’s enrollment regulations (in German)). Sufficient proof is also a German Abitur certificate showing at least five years (four years if G8) of English, passed at least with “ausreichend” or 5 points.

For applicants who did not obtain their university entrance qualification at a German-speaking institution or did not earn a degree in a German-language degree program, German-language skills at the level (DSH-2) of the “German Language Proficiency Examination for Admission to Higher Education for Foreign Applicants (DSH)” are recommended. Otherwise, you may not be able to choose modules in which courses and examinations are solely in German.
