Admission requires a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science, media informatics, media technology or a related field with a strong focus on computer science. Bachelor degrees in electrical engineering, physics or mathematics may be eligble if you took a significant number of core computer science courses during your studies. If the converted credit-weighted average grade of your Bachelor's degree is at least 2.0 in the German system, your chances of acceptance are very good.

We recommend that you acquire some basic German before you come to Weimar, although no official certificates of German language exams are required.
