MSc. Web and Data Science
- Excellence in Teaching
- Important Dates
- Living in Germany
Starting from winter semester 2019/20, all newly incoming students will be automatically enrolled to "Master in Web and Data Science". If your application interface still says Master in Web Science, then it's due to the ongoing adaptation and will soon change to its correct naming.
The application procedure depends on various factors. Follow this chart in order to find out how you should apply.
A) Uni-assist's Application Portal
Students with a degree from outside of Germany that are not currently studying at a German university apply via uni-assist. Uni-assist is an external service provider and not affiliated with the University of Koblenz-Landau. Uni-assist checking your higher education entrance qualification („Hochschulzugangsberechtigung“) and Master's entrance qualification ("Masterzugangsberechtigung"). More information about the application via uni-assist can be found at our university's guidelines regarding uni-assist. Uni-assist also provides a detailed description of the process.
Application opens on 1st February (for winter term in the same year) respectively on 1st August (for next year's summer term). To find our programme quickly, log in into the uni-assist portal, click on application, choose your desired semester, select „Koblenz-Landau, Universität Koblenz Landau“ from the university drop down list and enter „Web Science“ into the course name field. (cf. the vide below). Make sure to select the right semester, as in some months you can apply for both winter and summer term.
If you have any questions on this step, please refer to uni-assist – we do not have insight on your application during this phase.
Please pay the uni-assist fee as early as possible, because uni-assist will start processing your application only after you payed the fee. Uni-assist offers a detailed description of payment options. After payment is complete, it takes uni-assist about 6 weeks to process your application. Until uni-assist notifies you that your application has been sent to our University, we do not have access to your data, so please direct any inquiries about the application status to uni-assist and not to us.
If uni-assist confirms that you are legally allowed to take up a Master's programme in Germany, your application gets forwarded to us at Institute WeST. Uni-assist informs you that your application gets forwarded to us, but it will take approx. 1 week until we get access to the data. We will then check if you fulfil requirements and decide if you will be admitted or not and forward our decision to the University's Office of the Registrar. Successful applicants will receive notification from our University's Registrar's Office approx. 2 weeks after uni-assist sent the documents to us. Rejected applicants will receive notification later. Please do not ask us about the status of your application before at least four weeks have passed after uni-assist has sent us your documents.
Keep in mind that these documents must be delivered both electronically and per postal mail. If not issued in English or German, you must also provide an officially certified translation. Do not forget to include an English language certificate as listed on our requirements section.
Due to the lengthy programme application process (around 6-7 weeks) and visa wait times (up to 3 months, depending on country), we strongly advice non-EU applicants to send the complete application to uni-assist and pay the uni-assist fee as early as possible, at the very latest by 15 May (for winter term) respectively 15 November (for summer term). Otherwise you will very likely run into time issues. EU students should apply no later than 15 June for the winter semester and by 15 December for the summer semester.
Also, you must have arrived in Koblenz at the start of the semester (1st April for summer term, 1st October for winter term) and enroll within the first three weeks of April or October.
B) University's Application Portal
Students with a German Bachelor's or Master's degree from Germany and students who have been enrolled at a German university after applying via uni-assist do not need to apply through uni-assist again. Please apply directly at the University of Koblenz-Landau's application portal. General information on application can be obtained at our university's help site for applicants (in German). The university opens application for winter term approximately in June, for summer term in December.
You will receive a binding list of required documents after online application. For starters, follow this list, it is the same list as for the application via uni-assist.
Please address questions regarding your application to the leader of the Student's Office, Ms. Scholten.
The Web Science Master's programme is excepted from the university-wide application deadlines (15th of July or January), thus applications are welcome on an ongoing basis and admittance is possible until available places are filled or the term starts.
However, keep in mind that administrative processes take some time and a late application could interfere with your scheduled begin of studies. As a rule of thumb, July (for winter term) or January (for summer term) are reasonable, non-binding deadlines. Your application will be processed even if you submit it after July or January.
Due to the long visa application process, we strongly advise non-EU students to apply for the winter semester by 15 May and for the summer semester by 15 November. EU students should apply no later than 15 June for the winter semester and by 15 December for the summer semester. Please keep in mind that administrative processes take some time and a late application could interfere with your scheduled begin of studies.
Also, you must have arrived in Koblenz at the start of the semester (1st April for summer term, 1st October for winter term) and enrole within the first three weeks of April or October.
C) Transfer within Koblenz University
Students who are already enrolled at the University of Koblenz-Landau please contact Ms Weidenbach <firstname.lastname@example.org> for changing the course.
