Most of the resources in the field of data science are in English and the MSc Programme will be taught exclusively in English.
In order to enrol for the Programme you will need to demonstrate
- English to Level B2 (Any English-speaking university or a B2 equivalent can be found in the area: 'Document Center' -> select 'OZI' -> then search the term 'B2'). This certificate can be sent after you are selected.
- at least 20 ECTS in Mathematics and/or Statistics, e.G. Analysis, Linear Algebra, Numerical Analysis, Probability Theory, etc. (at least 75% via University Courses). Normally this is about 4 courses.
- at least 25 ECTS in Computer Science, e.g. Programming, Databases, Distributed Systems, Application Programming (at least 75% via University Courses). Normally this is 5 courses.

Now you select that you want to study data science starting at the correct start date of the semester:
After giving us your place of birth and your nationality:
Now you need to enter information about
- your school time that enables you to study and
- your Bachelor degree that enables you to study a master program
Note that we take the converted grade by uni-assist and not the grades you enter here. So dear foreign students: it really does not matter what you enter here! Select something with aHR (allgemeine Hochschulreife as "Fachgymnasium aHR"). HRZ Means Hochschulzugangsberechtigung which is the type of admission to study.
You might also convert your grades to the German grades (1,0 is best; 4,0 is worst).
If - anywhere in the process - you receive red error marks, try to translate the messaged on the bottom of the page!
Now we might need additional information which could be necessary only for German students!
Now print everything and correct everything. Then send it of (in our case) to UNI-ASSIST. The "Bewerbung absenden" will show you the PDF download screen. The message on this screen says: Send it to Beuth, but this is meant to German students only! Of course international applicants MUST sent all via uni-assist!
Now you have printed and stored your application. Congratulations!
Good luck! We hope you will be selected.
