The study regulations consist of the general study and examination regulations (ASPO) and the subject-specific provisions (FSB) including the subject description (SFB).
The study program can be started in the winter and summer semester. The study program is free of admission, there is a procedure to determine the suitability (see FSB). The standard period of study is four semesters, with a total of 120 ECTS credits to be achieved.
The documents that capture the cornerstones of the computer science MSc programme are:
- the ASPO (General Academic and Examination Regulations) for the Bachelor's and Master's Degree Programmes at Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (non-legally binding English translation available here)
- FSB (Subject-Specific Provisions, in German only) for the Master of Science Degree Programme in Computer Science. The latest official FSB can always be found in this overview (in German) in the row for "Informatik".
- the Subject description (SFB, "Studienfachbeschreibung") lists and describes all modules available in the computer science MSc
- The study plan (in German) shows a proposal of how the study can be designed in order to be able to complete it in the standard period of study. This proposal is not binding and a variety of further courses of study are possible.
Please follow these steps to apply to the computer science MSc programme:
- Submit your application documents as outlined on this page of the Service Centre International Affairs
The requirements of your application documents are further detailed in the Section 4 of the FSB, as well as in the FSB’s Appendix, Section 2 (3).
- Your application documents will be subjected to an aptitude test conducted by our department (FSB’s Appendix, Section 4). In case your grades are not sufficiently great, you might still be admitted to the programme for as long as you achieve an accordingly better grade in an aptitude assessment procedure.
- After successfully passing the aptitude test, you will receive a certificate of admission from our department.
- With this certificate, you will need to enrol in the CS MSc programme by registering and paying the semester fees (these are not tuition fees and cover, for instance, use of public traffic in the city of Würzburg). Please follow this link for more information and instructions.
