Master & Doctorate Education In Germany

Free master’s degree in Germany


Many German universities are in the top percent of world rankings. The reason why you can get such a prestigious education for free; education is financed by the state. Although most of the public universities in Germany study free of charge, in some states, students are charged only 300-650 Euros per year under the name of different funds or memberships. In this regard, German universities are one of the greatest opportunities for postgraduate studies abroad.


Students can easily learn German in the preparatory education they receive in the first year, and they can start training.


Integrated training with world-leading companies and industrial organizations


The most important feature that makes postgraduate education valuable and important in Germany is that universities often provide education in integration with the country’s major industrial and commercial institutions. Students who receive master’s education in Germany take project tasks and do internships in these organizations throughout their education. In this way, when you graduate, you will have both a hands-on education and the experience and reference of working in the world’s giant brands.


Easy application and admission requirements

In order to apply for a master’s degree in Germany, it is sufficient to have a bachelor’s degree or to be at the graduation stage.

There are 4 important requirements for students who want to study master in Germany:

  • Your undergraduate GPA must be 2.70 or higher. If your undergraduate GPA is 2.70 or less, even if universities give you conditional admission, the Consulate can cause problems in this regard and usually results in visa refusal.
  • Whichever undergraduate department you graduated from, it should be in the same department in your master’s degree. If German universities in a different field do not accept you, you can continue in your own field.
  • The motivation letter you will prepare and the reference letters you will receive from your University should be very good.
  • In order to apply for a master’s degree in Germany, it is sufficient to be a university graduate or to be at the graduation stage.

Doctoral Education in Germany


It is not difficult to understand why Germany is popular as a study destination. Germany has a global reputation as a world leader in technology innovation and research. In addition, it continues to attract many international students with its strong economy, attractive quality of life, and outstanding achievements in engineering and manufacturing.

Germany attracts international students with its high standard of living, as well as the low tuition costs of its universities, and very good job opportunities both while studying and upon graduation. Doctoral programs in Germany are generally free of tuition fees, and more than a quarter of doctoral candidates in Germany receive government scholarships.


Types of Doctoral Programs in Germany


Personal Doctorate


This PhD is the most traditional and most preferred form of PhD. In this program, students do their thesis work under the supervision of a professor, but mostly work independently. Personal doctorates usually take three to five years in length. The Individual Doctorate offers the student a great deal of flexibility, but also requires a great deal of personal initiative and responsibility. The student is not limited to doing research at a university; In addition, he can complete his project in non-university research institutions or in a German company in the industrial sector.


Planned PhD program (Structured PhD Program)


Another doctoral program that those who want to do a PhD can choose is the Structured PhD Program. This program involves mentoring a group of doctoral students by a group of supervisors. In Germany, there are nearly 600 English-medium programs with such international content. These programs differ from individual doctoral programs in that students’ research proposals must be in line with existing doctoral programs. Students must attend lectures and seminars and have a mentor.


Fee for Doctorate Education in Germany


Doctoral programs at all public universities in Germany remain free for all students, regardless of nationality. The length of a standard doctoral program is three years. If this period is extended, you may have to pay a fee.

As with all levels of study in Germany, doctoral students pay between €150 and €200 per semester for administration and other costs.
