Degree Programs with an Admissions Procedure


Types of Degree Programs

If you take a closer look at the academic degree programs we offer, you will notice that university-level education follows a defined educational structure. The most common is the: Bachelor - Master's - Doctorate / Ph.D. system. Only a few majors conclude with a Diploma degree and the ensuing Doctorate / PhD program.


Three-Level Study Structure

  1. The Bachelor's degree programs form the basis of the three-level Bachelor's - Master's - Doctorate/PhD system. Generally, an undergraduate degree can be completed in 6 semesters and concludes with earning the academic degree "Bachelor of Arts" or "Bachelor of Science" in a specified major.

  2. The Master's degree programs are the next level of academic education.  Graduate degrees usually take 4 semesters to complete and graduates earn the academic degree "Master of Arts" or "Master of Science", for example. A Diploma degree program is approximately 8 to 9 semesters.  Students who complete a Diploma degree program earn the academic title "Magister" / "Magistra" or "Diplom-Ingenieur".

  3. Graduates of both a Master's degree program or Diploma degree program can enroll in a doctorate degree program. A doctorate/PhD degree usually takes about 6 semesters to complete. Doctoral candidates then earn the highest academic degree: "Doctor" or "PhD".

Additional Educational Opportunities.
