Undergraduate degree programs

An undergraduate degree program is a study program that leads to the student’s first degree or diploma for higher education. This category includes Bachelor’s degree programs, but also programs toward the state exam (Staatsexamen), Diplom or Magister degrees. Master’s degree programs, by contrast, are always graduate programs, which means that admission always requires that the student has successfully completed an undergraduate program first. In Germany, agreements laid out by the Conference of Education and Cultural Affairs (Kultusministerkonferenz) state that undergraduate programs that lead directly to a master’s degree are not permitted.

Graduate degree programs

The master’s degree is an academic degree that university graduates earn upon completion of a second academic program. A Master’s degree program lasts two to four semesters and builds upon an undergraduate program. Students who wish to enroll in a master’s degree program are required to have a bachelor’s degree or other degree or diploma from one of the single-stage academic programs traditional in the German system (Magister, Diplom, first state exam (Staatsexamen) in law or teaching credential (Lehramt) program; degree in medicine).

Depending on the area of focus, a master’s degree program can allow the student to explore the subject previously studied in greater depth or to branch out into new areas of knowledge. A doctoral program (Promotion) leads to the academic degree of doctor (Doktorat) in a specific discipline. This degree is considered proof of the student’s aptitude to work scientifically or academically at an advanced level. It is based on an independent academic work – the dissertation – and an oral exam.

Doctorate at Freie Universität Berlin

Very attractive for international students: along with the University of Heidelberg, Freie Universität Berlin is the preferred address in Germany for doctoral candidates from abroad. Source: Peter Himsel

As one of nine Germany’s leading universities Freie Universität Berlin offers high quality doctoral education. In the Excellence Initiative competition Freie Universität was awarded additional funding for its outstanding graduate programs to promote young researchers.

Individual Doctorate

The individual doctorate (“Apprenticeship Model”) – independent research under supervision of a professor – is still the most common way to pursue a doctorate in Germany. This usually provides greater freedom as far as the choice of subject is concerned. An individual doctorate can principally be accomplished in any subject area represented by a professorship at Freie Universität Berlin. Requirement for acceptance as a doctoral candidate is generally a very good final degree. Individual doctoral students do not automatically take part in a qualification program.

Doctoral Degree Programs

Pursuing doctoral studies in a doctoral degree program, doctoral candidates come together to work on projects related to a common interdisciplinary research topic. During the course of their doctorate junior researchers in obtaining a broad set of skills  to enhance their personal, professional and career development.

Doctoral Education at Dahlem Research School (DRS)

Outstanding doctoral degree programs are comprised under the umbrella of Dahlem Research School. Doctoral candidates of DRS-member programs benefit from an interdisciplinary course program in which transferable skills applicable to a range of future careers in academia and beyond can be acquired. The Welcome Infos & Services Site for international junior researchers provides useful advice and information on all non-academic issues relevant to a research stay in Berlin. Newly admitted doctoral candidates are invited to attend DRS Orientation Weeks in September.

  •     You have earned qualifications comparable to the abovementioned advanced continuing or professional education program (Aufstiegsfortbildung) within the meaning of the Seafarers’ Act (Seemannsgesetz).
  •     You have earned qualifications comparable to the abovementioned advanced continuing or professional education program (Aufstiegsfortbildung) based on continuing or professional education governed by state law or regulations for healthcare professions or in the fields of social care, social services, or education.

Candidates who demonstrate that they have completed vocational training abroad in accordance with the points described for Group 1 are also considered to have higher education entrance qualifications.

Group 2

Those with professional qualifications are considered to have earned higher education entrance qualifications associated with a specific subject (fachgebundene Hochschulzugangsberechtigung) if the following prerequisites are met:

  •     You have completed a vocational training program regulated under German federal or state laws or regulations of not less than two years’ duration in a subject similar to that of the academic program for which you wish to apply,and
  •     You have worked for at least three years in the profession for which you were trained.

Applicants, who cannot clearly assign themselves to group 2 or 3, have the opportunity to consult the Student Records and Registration Office. Please contact us no later than June 6, 2013.

Candidates who demonstrate that they have completed vocational training abroad in accordance with the points described for Group 2 are also considered to have higher education entrance qualifications. Substantial Information on recognition procedures for foreign degrees, please consult the following web portals:

The minimum amount of professional experience is higher for part-time employees.

Periods of maternity leave (Mutterschutz), parental leave (Elternzeit) or leave to care for a family member (Pflegezeit) are offset up to a maximum of one year.

Group 3

If you have higher education entrance qualifications associated with a specific subject (fachgebundene Hochschulzugangsberechtigung), but cannot demonstrate any relation between that subject and your chosen academic program, you can still apply (see prerequisites for professional qualifications of Group 2). In such cases, an obligatory entrance exam has to be passed. Please note the specific requirements for an application below.

You apply to the appropriate departments for recognition of equivalency of the academic program and placement within the appropriate subject-specific semester after receiving an admissions notice.
