The volunteer buddies support you in individual support during your first steps in Darmstadt, at the department and the university. We also offer workshops on how to use the campus management system and course registration as well as exam preparation and registration. In between, regular group meetings are organized with all buddies and mentees.

Read the information for mentees for more details.

Under Dates and Deadlines you will also find the already fixed dates around the Buddy Programme and the semester in general.

The winter semester traditionally begins with the orientation week in the week before lectures begin. There you will not only learn how studying with us works, but also get to know the city, the university, the department and of course your fellow students with fun and games. It's worth taking part! Further information is provided by the Mathematics Student Council.

Academic requirements

As a rule, you are eligible for a Master's degree at our Department of Mathematics if you have a Bachelor's degree in mathematics. It is possible to apply before completing a Bachelor's degree if you have the degree at the beginning of the Master's degree course.

We receive many applications from prospective students in engineering courses. We are pleased about your interest! However, we would like to point out that applications from students in engineering courses are only promising in exceptional cases.

In order to make it easier for you to assess whether you are eligible for a Master's degree with us, we have compiled recommended literature from the individual subject areas. If you have the required knowledge, nothing stands in the way of admission! Furthermore, you can check your mathematical knowledge and skills in our online self-assessment.
