Advised by internationally renowned scientists, you can participate in one of the many research groups and find your way into top notch research.
Talented students with strong interest in research who hold a Masters or an excellent Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or in a related field can apply.
Financial support during both phases (of course assuming adequate progress) will be provided. During the preparatory phase starting after your BSc degree, this support comes in the form of scholarships (800 € per month) or teaching and research support contracts. During the research and dissertation phase, you are supported in the form of stipends (about 1400 € per month) or of research or teaching assistantships.
There are currently no tuition fees, only a student fee of 140 € per semester which gives you free access to public transportation and reduced student rates at the university cafeteria and for many other public services (museums, concerts).

What is the working language? All courses, exams, etc. are in English. Good English skills will be essential for your success here.

How does it work?
After your successful application, you first undergo (depending on your degree) a three semester preparatory phase which consists of research-oriented, broad course work adjusted to personal interests. You may choose from all our courses at the Masters level. We provide common office space especially for students in this phase. You have ample opportunity to acquaint yourself with the many computer science research groups in Saarbrücken and to find a group and an advisor matching your interest.After passing a qualifying exam, you enter the research and dissertation phase which you spend as a member of a research group. During the entire program there is a comprehensive offering of so-called Soft Skills seminars and courses.
In justified cases, you can be exempted from parts of or even the entire preparatory phase. Also, the courses you take in the preparatory phase can be used towards a Masters degree, if this is desired and all formal requirements are met.
