You can find the necessary steps for the application in the step-by-step guide How to apply for an online master's?
Students holding a BSc degree or equivalent (university, Fachhochschule, ...)* in one of the following fields are eligible for the MSc programme Plant Breeding:
- Life Sciences or related fields
Students with other BSc degrees can be admitted based on the actual courses in their BSc (or MSc) programme and/or relevant work experience. Please ask the programme team for possibilities: email@example.com. Students with a Higher National Diploma (HND) are not eligible.
*As some countries are not yet using the bachelor's-master's system, in some situations, students from within the EU are eligible for admission based on a statement by their university that the level reached is 'BSc-equivalent'.
A grade point average of 70% is the minimum requirement. Students with a GPA between 60 and 70% may be eligible under certain conditions, such as relevant work experience, illness during part of the programme or students with a high mark for thesis work and specialised courses. Students with a BSc degree below Second Division Upper level are not eligible.
When the grading of your programme has been done in a different way and you are not sure how to relate this to the 70% GPA requirement, please contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We don't make use of a GRE or GMAT examination.
