As of Fall 2019 the program ‚Master in Web Science‘ will not accept new students. Instead, we will offer the program ‚Master in Web and Data Science‘. For technical reasons, it is still undefined when the application interface for ‚Master in Web and Data Science‘ can be opened. Applying from abroad is a lengthy process. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you apply for the Master in Web Science now and transfer into the Master in Web and Data Science when you arrive at University of Koblenz-Landau. We will accept all requests to transfer from Master in Web Science into Master in Web and Data Science.
