Your Application

The programme can be taken up in the winter and summer semester. Applications can only be submitted online, usually by the closing date for enrolment of the respective semester. You can find information about the application and deadlines here.

In case of questions and uncertainties about the application procedure or with regard to the qualifications required for admission, please read the FAQs first. In the case of (presumed) insufficient statistical and/or quantitative-methodological knowledge (< 30 ECTS points), there are possibilities of how the missing knowledge can be made up for relatively unproblematically, almost without loss of time, and which relevant quantitative-methodological and/or statistically oriented basic modules could be completed (e.g. in a module course preceding admission to the Master's programme in Survey Statistics) in order to fulfil the requirements for admission to the Master's programme in Survey Statistics.
