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

  • A bachelor’s degree in geosciences or physics with 20 credit points in meteorology, as well as 20 credit points in physics, 15 credit points in mathematics and additionally 5 credit points in physics, mathematics or computer science.

  • Proof of English language skills (level B2 CEFR).

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.

The master’s program in meteorology is based on the bachelor’s program in the same discipline. Here, issues from the areas of numeric modeling, theoretical meteorology, weather and climate diagnosis, and satellite meteorology are approached from a research angle. Students are given the tools to independently explore the current questions of meteorology and climatology using scientific methods to answer them, and learn to present the results of their own work. This approach prepares students for a profession in the sciences.
