Course Content

Mandatory Modules

  • Fundamentals from Mathematics and Physics
  • Basic Geophysics
  • Tools
  • Advanced Geophysics
  • Independent Scientific Research

Specialisation: choose one module from the following three

  • Advanced Geodynamics
  • Advanced Seismology
  • Advanced Paleo- and Geomagnetism

Choose two modules from the following:

  • Geochemistry and Geomaterials
  • Applied and Industrial Geophysics
  • ESPACE (Earth oriented space science)

Requirements

Candidates for the programme must possess the equivalent of a bachelor's degree (in a programme of at least 6 semesters) with a final grade of at least 3.0 (when translated to the German grading system) in one of the following fields:

  • Geosciences
  • Geophysics
  • Mineralogy
  • Geology
  • Physics
  • Biology
  • Mathematics
  • Engineering Sciences
  • or related subject

Candidates for the programme must provide proof of very good mastery of the English language. This can be documented by various means.

Standardised Tests:
  • Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a result of at least 213 points (computer-based test)
  • Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (CAE); grade A or B
  • Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE); grade A or B

Alternative proofs may be accepted by the board of examiners if a corresponding application is made. This might e.g. be a:

  • higher education entrance qualification from an institution with English as language of instruction
  • degree from an higher education institution with English as language of instruction
  • a bachelor's thesis written in the English language

However, in general a standardised test is definitely preferred.
