Please note that if you plan to study a dual-subject Master’s degree programme, you must also specify one main subject and one subsidiary subject. To find our which subject pairings are allowed, please refer to the table of permitted subject combinations. You can only enrol if you have been accepted for admission in both your main subject and your subsidiary subject.

Applicants whose pre-university education credentials were obtained in a country other than Germany

Applicants who do not have adequate proof of proficiency in German at the application deadline can apply as an external candidate to take the DSH language exam (Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang), which is the German language proficiency test for foreign applicants seeking admission to higher education, or they can apply for a place on the preparatory German course at Saarland University (ISZ Saar – International Study Centre Saar).

Please note that to pass the DSH exam for the purposes of admission to a Master's study programme, you will need to demonstrate an advanced level of German (equivalent to CEFR level C1). Applicants whose proficiency in German is lower than C1 can apply to join the preparatory German course.

Please also note that different deadlines apply for applicants who do not yet have the required level of proficiency in German (15 January for a summer semester start, 15 July for a winter semester start). Applications for admission to the Master’s programme will only be processed if they are submitted before the relevant deadline.

Students can begin this programme at the beginning of the winter or summer semester. Applications should normally be received by 15 May for students wishing to begin in the winter semester and by 15 November for students starting in the summer semester. Applications should be submitted via the online application portal managed by the Department of Computer Science, where you will find further useful information about the application and admission procedures.
