Any student with a Bachelor’s degree that certifies knowledge in the fundamental methods of Computer Science or an equivalent field, and with a grade point average of at least 3.0 can register for the Master’s program in Computer Science at the University of Paderborn. If the Bachelor’s degree was granted by a different university, the fundamental knowledge of and requirements for this Bachelor’s degree must be similar to those required for a degree granted by the University of Paderborn. In such cases the Examination Board determines whether the degree is equivalent.
Please check our Information for international students for further details.
Graduates with a Bachelor’s degree in a field other than Computer Science can also apply for admission in the Master’s program. In such cases the Examination Board might either require the student to complete additional credit points first or place the student in an advanced semester in the Bachelor’s program. However, German proficiency is required in this case.
