Admission to master programme Zoology

The prerequisite for admission to a master programme is the completion of an eligible Bachelor or diploma programme (= in the same discipline). Here you will find information on the prerequisites required for admission. If your previous degree programme is considered as a eligible degree programme will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. 

Our advice: Thoroughly acquaint yourself about the prerequisites for admission to your chosen master programme at an early stage. Thereby, you have the possibility to fulfil prerequisites during the course of your previous studies, for example by completing specific extension curricula ("Erweiterungscurricula" - EC).

If your degree programme is not listed as example in the Master Access Guide, your application will be checked individually to determine if an admission to the master programme is possible.
