    Please follow these steps to apply to the computer science MSc programme:

    1. Submit your application documents as outlined on this page of the Service Centre International Affairs. Applications are only possible through our application system WueStudy. In addition to the documents described by the International Office please also fill this Excel sheet and list all relevant courses from your Bachelor's degree. This will help us check the admission requirements.
      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).
    2. Your application documents will be subject 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. 
    3. After successfully passing the aptitude test, you will receive a certificate of admission from our department. 
    4. 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.

    Further information can also be found on the pages of the office for student affairs and the international office.
