Information about the current situation

Due to measures to contain the corona virus, the application process for the master's degree programmes in Materials Science is being impaired. As most of our staff is working out of Home-Office, we kindly ask for your patience, as our respond time has increased. We will first process the complete applications received by the original recommended deadline (31 March / 8 April). Later applications will be processed in the order of their receipt.

Please do not worry about delays in sending your signed application documents. We are aware that postal systems worldwide are affected by difficulties. We will try to be as flexible as possible in this challenging situation.

International applications received after 31 July will not be considered for the winter semester 2020. Please also note that it is unlikely that you will be able to go through the visa process after our processing period for later applications.



Welcome to the Graduate Courses of the Institute of Materials Science at Kiel University!


We are aware that the choice of study location is of crucial importance within the choice of studies. On these pages the study location Kiel and the International Graduate Courses of the Institute of Materials Science will be presented.

Our International Graduate Programs at the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel are located at one of Germany's high impact institutes in modern materials science, situated on the external campus of the Technical Faculty, in the midst of an industrial area, between shipyards and high-tech companies.


We offer small size classes, highly motivated lecturers, an excellent surrounding for studying in familiar athmosphere and last but not least the city of Kiel, a city worth living in, located by the Baltic Sea and immersed in beautiful nature.
