The Geosciences at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg offer two research-oriented curricula (with 120 ECTS-Points) that lead to a Master of Science degree (M.Sc.) either in “Geology” or in ”Crystalline Materials”.
In contrast to the more rigidly structured B.Sc. program, the educational profile of the M.Sc. curriculum Geology can be assembled individually by selecting several courses according to a student's interest. A maximum of two modules (12 ECTS points) may be imported from other areas (e.g.: natural science, languages).
The individual study program must be assembled with the help of, and approved by, a commission of advisors at the beginning of the M.Sc. curriculum in order to ensure that the program achieves a meaningful depth.
The course details of the M.Sc. curricula are listed in separate handbooks for geology and crystalline materials.
M.Sc. program Crystalline Materials is accessible to all students, who have acquired a B.Sc. in Geology, Geoscience, Earth Science, Mineralogy, Materials Science, Materials Technology, or Microsystems Engineering from a German university, or from other universities and colleges world-wide (in accordance with certain quality control criteria).
Students with a B.Sc. degree in Chemistry or Physics may also be granted admission to the program. In the latter case, some of the fundamental Geoscience courses from the B.Sc. curriculum will have to be taken as electives.
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.

Already a comprehensive university at its founding in 1457, the University of Freiburg still offers undergraduate and graduate studies as well as professorial qualification in all important disciplines today: the humanities, natural and engineering sciences, medicine, law, and theology. This diversity also provides an ideal environment for innovative interdisciplinary studies.
