In many European countries, a master’s is the second degree that students can acquire by completing a program of study at university. The standard duration of most master’s programs at TU Clausthal is four semesters.
A prerequisite for any master’s degree program is a completed bachelor’s program. Each bachelor’s program at TU Clausthal has at least one master’s program that counts as consecutive to it, i.e. as its natural progression (see Permitted bachelor’s and master’s combinations). Once you have your bachelor’s degree, you do not need to go through a separate application and selection procedure to be allowed to start a consecutive master’s program.
If you gained your bachelor’s degree somewhere other than TU Clausthal, please consult the Prerequisites section on the page of the master’s program you wish to undertake, to find out what else you may need to do before signing up. A master’s degree is equivalent to the Diplom degree that German universities used to offer. Master’s graduates are qualified to embark on doctorate studies.
