(15th of February 2024 – 31st of May 2024 for winter semester 24/25)
Our application process for the Master’s program is completely paperless. You only apply in digital form via our online application portal Campo (see below). You don’t need to send any hardcopies via post.
The deadlines are the same for national as well as international students. Applications are processed successively, hence, the earlier you apply, the earlier you will receive your result. Due to the large amount of applications we receive, it can take up to 14 weeks until you hear back from us. There is no limited number of spots, meaning that all qualified applicants will be granted admission.
The application for the Master’s program is to be made through our online application portal Campo. The portal will guide you through the application procedure (more details). Please select “M.Sc. Medizintechnik” as your study program. To choose one of the English-taught branches of study, you have to select “Medical Image and Data Processing (in English)” or “Health and Medical Data Analytics” (HMDA) or “Medical Robotics” later on in the process. You can only apply to one branch of study per application period. We apply the same admission criteria to all applicants, regardless of the chosen branch of study.

Applicants from Pakistan need a degree attestation by HEC on their degree certificate and transcript of records. Applicants from Bangladesh are advised not to apply before they have received their official degree certficate (convocation), as it will result in the deregistration of the student if the official certificate cannot be submited within one year after enrollment.
i) It is not necessary to take a standardized subject-related test such as GRE, GATE etc. in oder to apply to our program. But if you have already taken such a test, please submit the test result together with your application.
All of your certificates except for your language certificates have to be officially certified (i.e. notarized) copies. Additionally, if your certificates are not issued in German, English or French, you have to submit copies with an officially certified translation.
You do not need to submit recommendation letters, as we will not consider them in our admission process.
Our admission process has changed significantly, starting from the winter semester 23/24 intake. Therefore, admissions from previous semesters aren’t valid anymore and reapplicants with an admission from SS 23 or earlier are treated as regular applicants again. If you received admission for WS 23/24 and couldn’t enroll in the same semester, you can reapply via Campo for SS 24 (within the official deadline, with all required documents and with your previous admission letter) and we will admit you again – without you having to retake the digital admission test. The same applies if you receive admission for SS 24 and can only join our program in WS 24/25. If this is your case and you have submitted your reapplication via the Campo portal, please send an email to zimt-qfv[at]fau.de and inform our officers of the same.
