Additionally, students from Pakistan must certify their academic documents with a HEC stamp!

Special regulations for students from China

To be fulfilled (highly recommended) when choosing UdS as Entrance University: The German Embassy in China offers a service to all students who wish to study in Germany. A student is welcome to make an appointment at the embassy in order to check that their documents (diploma, transcript of records, etc.) are complete and authentic. Furthermore, you will have the chance to prove your language knowledge in a short interview. Applicants who choose to accept this offer will have better chances in the selection process. For more information, please contact the embassy: Akademische Prüfstelle Peking

Selection criteria

Study records
The AMASE programme is built on excellence. Candidates with exceptional academic achievements are particularly sought after. The programme is particularly attractive for students with outstanding results in subject areas relevant to materials science and engineering (e.g. material science, physics, etc.). Additionally, around 15% of your academic records should include courses related to mathematics.
At the end of the day, all applications will be considered, no matter the academic results.

Previous studies in Materials Science
Students should have previous study experience in areas relevant to Materials Science and Engineering. The ranking goes as follows:  

  • Materials Science, Materials Engineering
  • Physics, Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical, Electronic, Civil Engineering, etc. 

With degrees in Civil Engineering, Telecommunications, Textile Engineering, Design, Architecture, Computational Science, Informatics you will not be entitled to scholarships and only be accepted in exceptional cases.

Language knowledge
Good command of the language of the Entrance University is a precondition for the programme. It is advantageous that you also know the language of the Second University. If this is not the case, you should be willing to learn it.

It is also important that you are highly motivated to complete the AMASE programme. You can prove this by a well-written motivation letter on why you want to join the programme (1 page max.).
