Due to the language of instruction, the English-taught Master’s degree courses particularly attract international students. You can benefit from the high quality of teaching, the close collaboration with national and international industrial partners and the intercultural exchange with your fellow students from all over the world. Our international Master’s degree programs are typically four semesters in duration.

Private English-Taught Master's Degree Programs

RWTH Aachen offers some of its courses of study in collaboration with other (private) institutions. They are not part of the courses of study under public law, and thus are not governed by federal legal guidelines, e.g. university placement allocation. Some have tuition fees and require a period of professional experience.

Information about prerequisites, application processes, the university placement allocation process, and academic content is available from the host institution, to which you are applying.
