How To Apply

This is an explanatory video on how to apply (unfortunately in German).

Filling in the Self Report

The catalogue of modules that an applicant passed in the undergraduate studies has to be uploaded in the application process. This catalogue is needed for two reasons.

  • An applicant will be admitted to the selection process only if he or she has completed sufficient credits in modules that are closely related to the fields of computer science, information science, or data science.
  • The selection process considers, among other things, the applicant’s degree of aptitude based on the match between the undergraduate study profile and the intended specialization in the master’s program.

For details on the applocation process please see–how-to-apply_84162.php.

If an applicant has passed more than one university program he or she should consider the one which fits best with the intended specialization. The modules of this study should be entered in the Microsoft Excel template.

In the excel worksheet “FillOutTemplate” the following data has to be entered:

  • Personal data
  • The name of the program, the corresponding university (country) and the total of credits.
  • The catalogue of all modules. For each module the name and the number of credits have to be listed. In case of generic module names like “Project I” or “Seminar B”, please specifiy the topic or specialization of the module next to the module name.

If the transcript of the program does not cover credit points, but use another measure of student’s effort instead, this measure can be used in place of credit points. Check that the sum of the credits for all modules matches the total number of credits mentioned for the program.

After filling in the needed data, please save the worksheet in in CSV format. Please use the following filename schema: [BIS|DIS|ITM|SAR]-Lastname-Firstname.csv. The CSV file has to be uploaded into our Sciebo portal: If you upload the CSV file more than once we will use the last upload.

Please note: If you apply via uni-assist, you also need to upload the CSV self-report in the Sciebo portal.
