Transition Bachelor - Master

The requirement for admission to a Master degree program is the proof of a successfully acquired first degree qualifying for a profession (e.g. Bachelor).

In some cases, it might happen that the certificate of the successfully acquired degree cannot be issued at the beginning of the term because the grades for the final thesis or the colloquium are still pending or the procedure of issuing the certificate has not been finished yet. In order to assure nonetheless a smooth transition to Master studies, there is the opportunity to make use of the so-called "limited enrolment" in a Master degree program. In this case, the enrolment takes place with a limitation until the end of the first semester. This means that in this case you are entitled to re-enroll in the second term of the Master degree program under the condition that you have submitted the certificate of successfully acquired degree within a Bachelor degree program until the end of the first term of the Master degree program. If you have not submitted this certificate within the first term of the Master degree program, you will be de-enrolled and lose your status as member of TU Chemnitz.
Thus, you should only make use of this opportunity in case that you are sure to be able to submit the certificate of successfully acquired Bachelor degree in due time.
