How does the admission process work?


1. You submit your application either directly to Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin or to uni-assist.

2. About a month after the application deadline, the Central Admissions office at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin recorded your data, converted your Bachelor grade and checked your language certificates. After that, all documents (in German or English) are sent to the admission committee of the Master’s programme.

3. Within the next two or three weeks, the admission committee of the Master’s programme will check whether you have more than 30 ECTS for admission and determine your grade for the ranking.

4. The results will be entered in the online application system. For any
questions to your results use mscstatistics@lists.hu-berlin.de.

5. After a little more than two months, the admission or rejection notices should be sent out.

The time period between the end of the application period and the sending of the notification depends on the number of applications that the Central Admissions Office of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Admissions Committee of the Master’s programme have to process.

I have been successful for another Master’s programme and have to decide whether to accept or reject the admission. What should I do?

Universities often allow you to exmatriculate after a short period of time following enrolment; in most cases, you will also receive a partial or full refund of the fees.

So enrol for the other Master’s programme. As soon as you receive an admission letter for the Master’s in Statistics, exmatriculate for the other Master’s programme and enrol yourself for the Master’s in Statistics.

What is the NC of the Statistics Masters program?

There is no general information on the grades needed. It varies depending on the year you apply and the mathematics courses you took before, more information on calculating the application grade can be found in the program specific admission rules (German: Fachspezifische Zugangs- und Zulassungsregeln des Master Statistik, non-official translation into English: Subject specific access and admission rules for the ZSP-HU in the pdf document in III.b)). Information on the NC of previous years can be found on the HU website in the “Studienorientierungstool” esra.
