Which exam I have to give to do m.tech in Germany or France?

Ronak Gala Student Expert 9th Oct, 2019

The higher education system in Germany offers something for all students. Germany has approximately 450 universities accredited by the state and there are 17,500 programmes for degrees in the country. Almost every subject is catered by the universities at all academic levels. International students can study for their bachelors’, masters’ or even doctorates. Although most universities focus on scientific studies, it is possible to study art subjects at the top universities.

There are two taught programs in Germany.

  1. German Taught Program

    1. German language up to C1 level is compulsory
    2. Minimum 50% is required in bachelors to get into a German language course in a public university.
  2. English Taught Program

    1. IELTS/Tofel is required
    2. German language not necessary
    3. Minimum 80% is required in bachelors to get into an English language course in a public university.

Apart from minimum percentage criteria, German universities have many other requirements also. So you will need to check the requirements for your preferred course in the chosen university.

Basic requirements to study MS in Germany:

• You must have completed your bachelor's degree from a recognised university either in Germany or India. In case your certificate or diploma is not recognized, you should get it verified for comparison to a German diploma in order to gain access to higher education in Germany.

• You should have above 75% or 7.5 cgpa as the case may be to get admitted in a recognised university. Some universities also accept below 75% also.You must know German language upto C1 level. Some universities require up to B1, but C1 gives you the proficiency to converse well in the language.

•You will have to take TOEFL/IELTS for all the courses taught in English. Further, some courses might also require you to take up the GRE as well. I would recommend to give these exams as early as possible as if you don't get required marks, you can give it a second attempt.

• University may ask for a Statement of Purpose or a Letter of motivation. Try to start roughly jotting down some key points and start fine tuning and editing them early till you arrive at something you are satisfied with. Focus briefly on what you have done, what your career goals are and what motivates you to choose this path of studying. You should know these things.

•Try to get to know the specific requirements of the university for your preferred course. You can get the information on the website of the university or try contacting any counselor for the same.
