Masters Information Day

Interested in a Masters after your Bachelor?

Get to know the Leuphana Graduate School: At our yearly Masters Information Day you have the opportunity to get information at first hand. In addition to introducing the study model, the admission and admission requirements and explaining the application procedure, we offer presentations of our study programmes, which are given by lecturers - usually the programme managers. You can also get in contact and exchange ideas with current students of the Graduate School's Masters programmes.

Our last Masters Information Day took place in March 2022.

If you were unable to attend the event you can download most of the presentations held in 2021 on this page down below.

Campus walking tours

No matter whether the lawn in front of the mensa, the biotope garden, the library or the central building - studying is not all about lecture halls and seminar rooms. We have created a playlist with walking tours of some of the important spots on campus, so you can get to know it from home. Unfortunately, some of the videos are only available in German language but the shots might speak for themselves too.

Are spots given in preference to applicants who are applying for their first master degree?

There is no preference for applicants who are applying for the first time.

Up to which date is it possible to submit the Bachelor's transcript?

The Bachelor's transcript can be submitted until the 31st of March, although 81% of the examinations must have already been completed at the time of application. In this case, the grade on your transcript counts for the selection. Nevertheless, consecutivity must be proven at the time of application. Enrolment in the courses is not sufficient for this purpose.

Is it possible to submit my English language certificate at a later date and do I have to note this somewhere?

For programmes in English, the English proficiency certificate must be submitted at the time of application. In the case of German-language programmes, the English language certificate must be submitted by 31 March of the following year after the application date. In this case, you will receive a provisional admission and you must ensure that you provide proof of language proficiency on your own.

How can I find the admission limit?

You can find the admission limits on the application page under "Understanding the selection procedure". If you do not find your programme listed, there has not been an admission limit for that programme. Click here for more information.

How many people are admitted to the various Master's programmes per semester?

You can find out the number of available study places for each programme on the websites of the individual programmes under the item "At a glance".

Can I submit my exmatriculation certificate once I have been admitted?

Yes, you can submit it with your enrolment.

How do I know if the module titles on my Transcript of Records are meaningful enough to prove consecutiveness? Or is it advisable to always submit a module description as well?

It depends on the title of the course. Basically, there is no disadvantage in attaching a short module description of the modules that are relevant for the consecutive proof.

Which credits can be recognised as English language credits?

All credits taken in English either in Germany or abroad can be recognized. This also includes English credits earned as part of a semester abroad. Please note that your degree should not be older than 4 years. Inform yourself in advance if there are any differences in the English requirements for your desired programme. Further information is available in step 3

Is it possible to increase my points for the application, in addition to the specified optional qualifications, through further additional achievements?

Generally, no additional achievements, such as work experience, will be counted. Motivation or recommendation letters are not necessary and will not be credited, except for Work and Organizational Psychology and International Law of Global Security, Peace and Development. Please note that for a number of degree programmes there are optional tests and interviews. This means that you can take part in these procedures to improve your score, but participation is not compulsory. You can find all exceptions here.

Will the next winter semester be primarily online?

The current planning status is that the next winter semester will take place in presence. We are keeping a close eye on developments and will follow the respective guidelines of Lower Saxony. In the event of a changeover, you will be informed about this.

What happens after I have submitted my application?

Your documents will be reviewed in detail. This will take some time. We expect the first acceptances in mid-July. You can always check your current status here Your documents will be reviewed in detail. This will take some time. We expect the first acceptances in mid-July.
