For admittance to the master’s program applicants need to fulfill the following admission requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science or an equivalent university degree that covers the computer studies component of the bachelor’s program in computer science at Freie Universität Berlin.

The admission is limited.

The DSH - or German Language University Entrance Exam for Foreign Students - is obligatory for all applicants whose first language is not German and who have earned their initial degree from a university (or equivalent institution) where the language of instruction is not German.

Students do not pay any tuition fees, the university only charges semester fees and contributions each semester.

Computer science is devoted to the study of the electronic processing, storage, and transfer of data. The principles of constructing and programming computers are still at the core of the discipline. The in-depth courses in the M.Sc. program are strongly linked to the application-oriented projects of the research groups at the institute. The modules of the M.Sc. study program can be selected from four areas: theoretical computer science, practical computer science, technical computer science, and applied computer science.
