Application

Who should apply?

Our Master in Geomatics is intended for motivated students who want to deepen their knowledge from a Bachelor of Engineering degree to the field of Geodesy, Geoinformatics, or Industrial Metrology.
For an admission as a regular graduate student, the applicant must have obtained a 4-year bachelor’s degree in an engineering science of acceptable standing from a Higher Education Institution. The application must give evidence that the student possesses a potential for strong academic performance at the graduate level.

Bachelor engineering degrees should preferably be in Geosciences. Degrees in neighbouring sciences may be accepted after a specific evaluation. Typical neighbouring sciences are Computer Science, Civil Engineering, Industrial Metrology, and Quality Management.
Applications with bachelor degrees that are not directly related to Geoscience or Geodesy will be regarded as candidates for a ‚presemester‘ at the UAS Neubrandenburg. This presemester is offered every summer semester for a limited number of students. Here, special courses on the bachelor level are provided to close knowledge-gaps, earn missing ETCS, and prepare for the masters level.  

Students who have obtained their bachelor degree at a German University/Hochschule or at a University with which the UAS Neubrandenburg has an academic agreement may enroll directly.
All other students must apply via Uni-Assist (Germany). This organization will check your academic records and forward it to UAS NB for further evaluation and decision about admittance.

Proficiency in the German language is recommended, but not required. Proficiency in the academic English language is mandatory. International applicants for whom English is not the native language must submit evidence of sufficient knowledge of the English language on level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Language as follows:

  • TOEFL 72-94, IELTS (5.5-6.0), Cambridge Certificate (B2 First).

This requirement can be waived if the candidate has completed at least three (3) years of academic work on a full-time basis at a university-level institution in a country in which English is recognized as the official language or where the medium of instruction is English.

 

How and when should you apply?

Applicants with international qualifications must submit their application documents through the “Arbeits- und Servicestelle für internationale Studienbewerbungen e.V.” (uni-assist e.V.). An online application is mandatory, all certified documents have to be sent by postmail to uni-assist. The application portal by uni-assist will be open for:

  • applications for Summer Semester: from November until 31st December,
  • applications for Winter Semester: from May until 30th June.

Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible, because other formalities like visa application take additional time.
The summer semester (presemester) starts on 1st of March. The winter semester starts on 1st of September. Please make sure, you arrive in Neubrandenburg at these dates at the latest. Students arriving later will most probably be confronted with problems getting laboratories places, computer accounts and missing introductory lessons.

Prospective international students can find further information at our International Office.

 

Application Evaluation

Applications are evaluated as a complete portfolio. Completed master’s applications via uni-assist e.V. will be promptly evaluated by our admissions committee. Admittance is based on an estimate of the applicant's ability to successfully complete our graduate program and on the compatibility of the student’s interests in our programs.

As soon as an admission decision is reached, the applicant will be notified directly through the online application system. Please note that admission decisions cannot be revealed over the telephone. It is the practice of our  university not to discuss application results with prospective students. We do not reconsider applications, due to the large volume of applicants.
