General information about supplementary courses:
As a consequence of the study progress reform, there is no longer possibility to supplement a bachelor degree with additional courses before admission to a master programme. You typically are required to fulfill the requirement through your bachelor degree, possibly by selecting specific subjects or electives. If this is not possible, supplementary activities after admission may be possible in special cases to the extent that such activities are offered.
There is a transitional period, which last until 31 August 2016, where it will be possible to take supplementary activity after a completed Bachelor program in order to meet the admission requirements for a Master’s degree programme. The last time this will be possible is for the intake for study start September 2016.
