Once we have received your written application package, we will formally check whether you fulfil the requirements for the study programme.

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) usually does not qualify for a Master's programme in Mathematics at TU Darmstadt. If you are unsure, please contact the .
