  • Verification of at least 150 of the 180 ECTS credits is required at the time of application (83% of your overall credits for programmes with any other structure)

  • Academic achievement in Economics and/ or Agricultural Economics and/ or Econometrics totalling at least 60 ECTS credits (as measured for a 180 ECTS bachelor’s programme; for any other programme types at least one third of overall courses taken), including courses in Economic Theory, Agricultural Economics, and Development Economics totalling at least 30 ECTS credits altogether. 

  • As part of fulfilling the minimum of 30 ECTS course requirements in Economic Theory, Agricultural Economics, and Development Economics:

    • A minimum of 18 ECTS must be from modules with intermediate or high scientific level. For courses to be considered intermediate or advanced, the course content must clearly go beyond introductory or basic concepts.


  • Academic achievement in Mathematics or Statistics or Econometrics (in addition to the courses possibly counted above) totalling at least 12 ECTS credits (or 7% of overall credits for other structures).



Proof of relevant language skills

  • English
  • For a list of accepted language certificates, see: “Required application documents”
  • Please note that we can only accept one of the listed certificates and that your proof of language proficiency has to reach us either together with your remaining application material or, if sent separately, it still needs to be received within the application deadline.



Please pay attention to the following details

  • We do not confirm document receipt nor check application material for completeness prior to the admission process. Please refrain from asking for application receipt confirmation.
  • Your application documents have to remain with the University of Göttingen and will not be sent back to you, regardless of success or rejection of your application. 
  • The determination of the relevancy of previous studies is based on the documents enclosed in the application. Please submit documents that verify special knowledge for the selected course of study (syllabi e.g.), if not already evident from your transcript of records. This does not apply to Bachelor degree holders of the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Göttingen.
  • Unless needed as part of an EPOS scholarship application, please do not enclose any letters of recommendation. They will not be evaluated and will only slow down the admission process on our end and make it more costly for you to post your documents! 



Selection procedures and criteria

  • The selection process is a two-stage process. The initial selection round will evaluate candidates based on their written application. The second round will evaluate candidates based on personal interviews.
  • The following points are evaluated in the pre-selection procedure:
    The overall grade of the degree on which application is based upon. In addition, special knowledge and abilities in those fields that specially qualify the applicant for the Master’s programme (for example, special knowledge in the areas of Economics), documented by a corresponding specialisation respectively performance in the programme, on which application is based upon.
