Admission documents must be submitted in full by 31 March for admission to the summer semester and by 30 September for admission to the winter semester. Further information can be found on the Studierendenservice website.

The admission to the Master's program at the RheinAhrCampus is also possible if a maximum of 15 ECTS credits are still missing from your previous degree. Proof of having passed the final examination (certified copy of the certificate and diploma, proof of performance with stamp and signature of the respective examination office) must be submitted to the student service (Studierendenservice) by the student by the end of the first semester at the latest. However, if it is then established that the admission requirements have not been met, admission to the Master's program will be declared invalid with retroactive effect. In general, you should bear in mind that - if possible - it is always advisable to apply with the complete application documents.

The checklist helps you and the examination board with the application process. Within the checklist, you note down the elements of your aptitude test in bullet points and receive an overview of the evidence to be provided. Please note that in addition to the checklist, the relevant supporting documents (certificate, proof of experience abroad, etc.) must be sent to the university with the application documents. The guidelines for submitting a scientific essay (English) on an MLI-related topic will help you to write your project draft. It shows the elements of the project outline and helps you with your structure.

A clearance certificate is a confirmation from your current university that you have not yet lost your right to take examinations. If you have just completed your studies and are not enrolled in any other programme, your Bachelor's certificate and your Bachelor's transcript will suffice as proof. In this case, however, a certificate of exmatriculation is required.

The Master's degree program has an aptitude test, which contains the following elements:

  • Above-average result of the first professionally qualifying degree or a final examination recognised as equivalent (grade 3.0 or better)
  • Proven international experience
  • Proven particular aptitude for academic work by submitting a one-page research proposal in English
  • Proven motivation for the Master's degree program in the form of an introductory interview with the head of the program

The Master's degree program can be started in the summer or winter semester. The lecture plans assume that you start in the winter semester, so the winter semester is referred to as the first semester for administrative purposes. There are no disadvantages for the student in terms of content, as the courses in the second semester are not based on those in the first semester.

In general, you can organise your studies as you see fit. We recommend that you concentrate on the courses in the individual semesters so that this is reflected in your final grade. This grade may be more important for your future career than entering the labour market one or two semesters earlier. We would also like to point out that many of the courses run in parallel and it is therefore very difficult to combine courses from different semesters.

In the 3rd semester (if you start in the winter semester, otherwise in the 4th semester) there is a compulsory period abroad of at least 26 weeks, which you must complete either as an internship abroad or by studying at a foreign university. Of course, you can extend the period abroad and also use your semester break for this. It is up to you to manage how you get the most out of your studies and how you make the most of our infrastructure and networks.

For the Master's degree program "Management, Leadership, Innovation" at the RheinAhrCampus, a social contribution is due each semester (the current amount can be enquired at Studierendenservice). This includes benefits such as a semester ticket (valid from Koblenz to Cologne). No tuition fees are charged.
