Change of university (Hochschulwechsel)

If you are/were already enrolled in an identical Master's degree course in Germany and you only wish to change the university, you are considered as "Hochschulwechsler".

If your current Master's degree course fulfills the following criteria, it is probably the same Master's degree course:

- identical name

- identical degree (Master) and type of degree (e.g. of Science)

- identical maximum total sum of ECTS points

Terms of study, course work and examination will be acknowledged for a change of university while maintaining your previous Master's degree course (Hochschulwechsel).

This means, you can only apply for the next higher semester. A downgrading is not possible.

The application for a higher semester is only possible for a semester within the standard period of study (Regelstudienzeit).

The responsible examination board will decide during the application process, if it is the same Master's degree course. We will notify you, if it is the same Master's degree course.
