The following documents are necessary for your application. Please check the following list to ensure that you have all the necessary documents available. All documents in a language other than English and German must be translated into English or German:

  • Degree certificate of a completed Bachelor's degree programme and university transcript including a list of subjects and grades.

If the degree certificate of your Bachelor's degree is not yet available, a provisional university transcript is sufficient. Your degree certificate must be submitted at the latest for enrollment.
  • The module handbook belonging to your Bachelor's degree programme or a comparable document indicating the duration, teaching forms, teaching content and learning objectives of the individual modules. If your university does not provide a module handbook, you can compile this information yourself. In this case, however, it must be clearly recognizable that your document is not an official document, but a self-created one.
  • Certificates for practical work experience in the field of engineering, e.g. due to internships outside the university or due to a job in industry.
  • Proof of English knowledge by the mandatory result of an English test. Among other tests we accept TOEFL (in case of the internet based test a minimum score of 72 is required), IELTS (minimum score required: 6), Cambridge Proficiency Certificate, Oxford Higher Certificate and International Converence ICC Stage 3 (Technical).

Without the form a timely processing of the application cannot be guaranteed and the application may not be considered.To be in principle admissible to the Master’s degree programme Electrical Engineering and Information Technology the applicant‘s Bachelor’s degree must not show substantial differences to the Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technolgy from the Kiel University in terms of scope and content.The form "Self-assessment of the comparability of modules" helps applicants and reviewers to compare the equivalence of the bachelor's degree of the applicant with the bachelor's degree from Kiel University and to determine whether there are substantial differences.

The form lists all compulsory modules of the Bachelor's degree programme Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at Kiel. Information on the content, learning objectives and scope of the modules can be found in the corresponding module handbook of the Bachelor's degree programme Electrical Engineering and Information Technolgy. The data listed below is required.

Please have a look at the example for an illustration of the information.
