Re-Enrollment

Re-registering in the same degree program at TU Berlin

If you were previously enrolled in the same master’s program at TU Berlin, you can apply for the next or an even higher degree semester. It is not possible to placed back in a lower semester. It is only possible to apply for a higher degree semester if you are within the standard period of study and after completed Bachelor. Should you be admitted, you will be a re-registrant in the same master’s program.

Please remember that when applying for a higher degree semester in a restricted admission degree program, you will only be admitted if you have been placed in the higher semester by the examination board and there are study places available. As a rule, we can only determine whether there are free places at the beginning of the semester.

What application documents do I need to submit and when?

Refer to the application checklist for master’s studies to see which documents are required for your application. If you are applying for a master’s program with restricted admission, you must have acquired the necessary credits from the previous semester and have received your placement in a higher degree semester from the relevant examination board.

You can apply for placement in a higher degree semester by the relevant examination board by submitting the Application for Recognition of Previously Obtained Credits - Parts A and B together with proof of all the study and examination credits you have thus far acquired.

Please submit the Application for Recognition of Previously Obtained Credits - Part A including the decision of the examination board by 1 October (applications for winter semester) or 1 April (applications for summer semester) by email to Graduate Admissions (koordinierung.master(at)studsek.tu-berlin.de). See also points 7 and 8 of the checklist for applications to a higher degree semester. Without the placement from the examination board, including a signature, you will be unable to enroll should you be admitted.

Your Application for Recognition of Previously Obtained Credits - Part B and the proof of the credits you have acquired thus far are retained by the relevant TU Berlin examination board and then submitted to the Examination Office after you have enrolled. Please do not submit this to Graduate Admissions.

If you are applying for a master’s program with free admission, you do not need to submit the Application for Recognition of Previously Obtained Credits - Part A with placement in the next higher degree semester (This does not apply if you are applying for a semester above the next higher degree semester).

Where do I apply?

Applicants who have acquired their first university degree at TU Berlin or a german University apply directly to Graduate Admissions at TU Berlin. Applicants who acquired their degree abroad must apply via uni-assist.

When can I expect a decision?

Places for higher degree semesters are generally allocated at the beginning of the semester (middle of October/middle of April), as we will not know before then if places are available in the corresponding degree programs.
