This service is for students enrolled in one of the programs faculty 5 offers and for prospective students interested in one of our (international) programs. We are not the "International Center" of the university, nor are we the Admissions Office. We are here to answer specific questions on our study programs and exchange programs in Computer Science, Computational Linguistics, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.
Our service point wants to provide you with all the information you need: From how to apply to one of our programs and how to enroll up to everything relevant during your studies. Furthermore, we collect information for and offer advice to our home students whishing to study abroad.
For specific information on the international Masters' programs please consult the programs' individual websites.
Our international Masters' programs
Faculty 5 is home to three international Masters’ programs: M.Sc. Computer Science and M.Sc. Computational Linguistics in the Computer Science department and M.Sc.

All three programs are taught in English and are designed to attract students from all over the world who have a very good Bachelor degree.
Furthermore, we also welcome international degree-seeking students in our other Bachelors’ and Masters’ programs. However, in order to study in these programs you need to be able to understand and speak German.

Exchange programs for interested students
Studying abroad is a very rewarding experience. Living and learning in a foreign country allows you to gain a new perspectives on your studies, your subject and often even your life. If you can find your way around in an unfamiliar environment and in a foreign language, there will be few situations that still scare you. You get to know new people, and you might be able to complement your course of studies with content not offered at your home university. Last but not least experience in a foreign country is likely to be well received when looking for employment and starting a career.
Faculty 5 offers different possibilities for studying abroad, ranging from exchange programs to summer schools. Check out the website for outgoing students to find a program suitable for you or to contact an advisor.
