Welcome to the Online Application Portal at the University of Potsdam
You can use the online application portal to apply for master´s degree programs that are not related to teacher training at the University of Potsdam; these are listed in the overview. There are no fees or costs for the application. Please note that not all degree programs allow applications in both the summer and winter semesters. For the master´s degree programs in linguistics and integrative sport, movement and health sciences, an application is only possible once the subject-specific Admission Regulations are released. Interested applicants can register here to be notified via email once the admission procedure is open.
Please take some time in advance - definitely before you apply - to learn about the admission requirements for your desired program of study. You can find information on this topic in the General Admission Regulations for non-teacher-training-related Master´s Degree Programs at the University of Potsdam (Zulassungsordnung-ZulO) and in the subject-specific Admission Regulations. For the Romance philology program, the provisions of the subject-specific Admission Regulations that were approved before the enactment of the ZulO continue to apply, insofar as these govern the admission requirements. You can find an overview here.
Even if documentation of your first university degree is not yet available by the admission application deadline, you can still apply for admission. At the time of application, we require at least the following credit point information and proof of the average grades attained up to this point in time:
- at least 140 CP in a bachelor’s degree program with a total requirement of 180 CP
- at least 170 CP in a bachelor’s degree program with a total requirement of 210 CP
- at least 200 CP in a bachelor’s degree program with a total requirement of 240 CP.
Students at the University of Potsdam who would like to switch to a non-teacher-training-related master’s degree program after completing their bachelor´s degree should note that, in addition to the application, they must submit the Application for Acceptance to Study a Master´s Degree Program within the response period (for the summer semester 2017: by February 15, 2017) to the Office of Student Affairs.
After you have electronically submitted your application, send the signed Application for Admission, as well as a copy of your degree certificate, or appropriate preliminary documentation of the grades you have received thus far, to the following address:
The University of Potsdam

If your transcript is in a language other than German or English, then a German or English translation, certified as accurate by a sworn translator, must be provided at the applicant´s cost.
