Transition from Bachelor's to Master's Program

In order to prevent any delay in studies during the transition from a Bachelor's to a Master's program, the following rules for the different types of students must be observed.

Seamless transition for students pursuing a major at the Faculty

In order to allow for a seamless transition from the Bachelor's to the Master's program, you must take the following steps in the final semester of your Bachelor's program:

  • Register in due time for the Bachelor's degree, taking into consideration the degree conferral dates.
    Degree deadlines
  • Submit your Bachelor's thesis on time.
  • Register for the Master's program during semester enrollment.

Completing Master's modules in advance

Admission to the Master's program is not possible without a Bachelor's degree. However, in this case, it is possible to complete modules from the Master's program in advance.

Students pursuing a major program at our Faculty who are still enrolled at Bachelor's level (e.g., if they must complete their Bachelor's thesis the following semester) may complete a maximum of 30 ECTS credits from the Master's program in advance (compulsory, core elective or elective modules from our Faculty's study programs). The assessment level must previously have been successfully completed.

Please note that these modules will not be credited to your Bachelor's degree. Furthermore, failed attempts will count at Master's level. Failed attempts at modules assigned to both the Bachelor's and the Master's level, however, will count at the advanced level of the Bachelor's program as long as the Bachelor's degree has not been obtained.

ATTENTION: Students from other faculties pursuing a minor study program at the Faculty of Business, Economics and Informatics may not complete modules for the minor program at Master's level in advance.

Conditional admission to the Master's program

If you were admitted to the Master's program with conditions, you may submit a petition to the examination delegate in your degree program and request to complete Master's modules in advance. This petition may be submitted once you have fewer than 30 ECTS credits in conditions left to complete.
