Bewerbung Mathematics

Application and admission: M.Sc. in Mathematics

Unlike the other study programmes taught in German, you apply for the M.Sc. programme in mathematics via the TU Darmstadt Application Portal for international students. Please follow the instructions you will find there.

The following documents (certified copies) must be submitted together with the online application form:

  • school-leaving certificate in the original language, and a certified translation
  • list of grades and subjects in the original language, and a certified translation
  • university entrance examination/certificate (if required in your country) in the original language, and a certified translation
  • copy of your passport ID page


  • language certificate (If English is your native language, a copy of your passport is sufficiant. If you have graduated from an English taught study programme, please hand in a confirmation from the university.)
  • academic degree in the original language, and a certified translation
  • transcript of records for each semester in the original language, and a certified translation

For the subject-specific classification we also ask you for the following documents:

  • a short letter of motivation in which you state your interest in the desired areas of specialization
  • Description of the mathematics courses you have attended so far.

For further information on the application procedure, please visit the website of the International Department.

Once we have received your written application package, we will formally check whether you fulfil the requirements for the study programme. You will need to submit the certificate for your first degree, a diploma supplement or comparable documentation.

The decision as to whether you will be admitted is made by a selection committee which may decide that you will only be admitted subject to certain conditions. This means you may be required to catch up on areas you have not yet studied (no more than 30 CPs) by the end of the Master’s programme.

Please note that a degree in non-mathematical subjects (no matter if Bachelor or Master) does not qualify for a Master's programme in Mathematics at TU Darmstadt. If you are unsure, please contact the .

If you are not sure if you are eligible for a Master of Science in Mathematics, we recommend the Online Self-Assessment.
