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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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.
If your bachelor program contains courses such that you fulfill the “Specialised knowledge 1” criterium then it counts as study program with a quantitative emphasis. Otherwise the admission commitee has to decide.
Yes, for example all degrees counting as a “degree in a study programme with a quantitative emphasis”. However, the admission commission decides whether specific degrees are accepted.
The admission rules contain no regulation concerning the date of the language certificates.
Yes, you can use the table on the comparison of language exams (English) of the Language centre HU to obtain the score that is needed.
The admission committee has the final decision. Please provide a description on the content of the courses, especially if it is not clear. Micro- and macroeconomy do not count as math courses. The same holds for accounting and logistics.
Courses from non-state-recognised higher education institutions are not recognised as quantitative courses. This includes, for example, courses at EdX, Coursera or Udacity.
No. A (bachelor) thesis is not course offered by your institution.
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.
