FAQ

For further information on the requirements please also refer to the Study and Examination Regulations (German).

General information and application process

Who can apply for this Master‘s programme? Am I eligible?

Everybody with an academic Bachelor's degree can apply. Students with an academic business background and a Bachelor’s degree with a workload of 210 ECTS can start right away with the Master's programme once accepted. All others must integrate a bridging semester.

We encourage an interdisciplinary mix for our students. Nevertheless, the Master is a business Master and requires a minimum of academic business courses in this field. Those applicants which have not acquired such in a prior academic programme can take part in a specialized bridging semester. All those with an academic business background but who only have 180 ECTS can fill the gap with a general bridging semester.

  • Specialized bridging semester: Applicants who do not have sufficient business knowledge (Introduction to Business Administration, Internal and External Accounting and a minimum of three other relevant subjects = 30 ECTS total) must provide evidence of this within one year. Please note that these courses are only offered in German at our university. German language level B1-B2 is recommended. We do not require any certificates for that, but you have to be aware of the fact that without passing these courses within the first year, you will be ex-matriculated from the programme. Relevant prior university-level courses can be credited.
  • General bridging semester: Applicants who have sufficient business knowledge but completed their Bachelor's degree with only 180 ECTS have to earn the rest of the required ECTS (30 ECTS) during their Master's programme. To do so, students can choose various courses in German or in English. Furthermore, they can also do a practical study semester.

Note: Students can also choose courses offered by Virtuelle Hochschule Bayern (vhb) which will be credited as well: https://www.vhb.org/fileadmin/download/kursprogramm/vhb-programme_english.pdf

 

What is the required language knowledge for this Master‘s programme?

German language knowledge at level A1 is required by the State of Bavaria. However, B1-B2 is strongly recommended for the specialized bridging module (see above). All students should be interested in reaching a high level of German language skills as soon as possible, as they would otherwise isolate themselves from their surroundings. We ourselves offer courses in the university but encourage everybody to start learning German as soon as possible. Depending on the semester, there might also be an option to take part in an online German course / exam organised by the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences.

Due to the current Covid19 situation, most applicants do not have the possibility of taking an official language exam. Therefore, your German language knowledge at level A1 can be assessed during the interview. Be prepared to pass a very short oral test during your interview. We are confident that you are able to assess for yourself if you are ready to study successfully in a programme that is offered in English. Furthermore, the interview will be held in English so we will assess your language skills during that as well.

 

Is working experience necessary for this Master‘s programme?

No, it is not necessary to have any kind of working experience.

 

What do I have to do to apply correctly?

Step 1: Preliminary Documentation Review (VPD) of uni-assist is mandatory for your university application. An application at www.uni-assist.de is possible throughout the entire year.

What must the Letter of Motivation contain?

The letter of motivation is intended to explain the reasons why you have chosen the programme International Product and Service Management and what you hope to gain from it. It should include a short autobiographical statement covering the development of your academic and professional pursuits, your current activities and the relevance of your academic, professional, and other related experience to your proposed study at Ansbach University of Applied Sciences. A well-written letter of motivation is focused on yourself and describes points that explain, in your own words, why you would like to further your studies in your chosen programme and how your interests and skills will contribute to your success in this programme as well as to your future career. For example, why are you interested in International Product and Service Management? What are your career intentions and why are you interested in pursuing those career ambitions? What accomplishments in your academic, professional, or other related experience are you most proud of and why? How would a Master's Degree in your chosen programme help you fulfil your future plans? Your letter of motivation should not exceed 500 words (no more than one page) and it must be written in English.

 

Do I have to request the evaluation report (VPD) of uni-assist again for Ansbach University of Applied Sciences or can I upload my VPD issued for another university?

We only accept the evaluation report that has been issued for our university. Only this version allows us to access the necessary information.

 

Whom do I have to send my application documents to?

Please do not send us any documents by email. We can only accept the online application on Primuss. You must upload all required documents there. Please do not forget to submit your application (missing documents may be uploaded later depending on the deadline). The registration on Primuss without submission of your application cannot be accepted!

 

Can I upload my documents in English?

As a rule, the documents must be submitted in German. Certificates issued as an original in English are also accepted. Translations of foreign-language documents must be legally certified.

 

What is the questionnaire and where can I find it?

The questionnaire is required for your application. It can be found here.

 
Does my final grade have to be converted into the German grading system?

Definitely! We can only accept final grades verified by uni-assist according to the German grading system.

 

Are there any final grade restrictions?

The university degree or equivalent degree in the course of studies has to be 2.0 or better (good or better) in accordance with the German grading system. The examination board can decide to admit those applicants who have an average between 2.1 and 3.0 and whose grade on their Bachelor's thesis is 2.0 or better.

 

Is there any tuition fee for this Master's programme?

There are no tuition fees. Our students must pay a student union fee each semester (status 01/2021: 52 EUR/semester). Please note that the evaluation report of uni-assist (VPD) must be paid as well.

 

When does the selection interview take place?

The interviews take place at the end of and right after the application deadline. You will receive an invitation by email approximately one week before your interview date.
The interviews take place via Zoom –> Data protection information for online events with Zoom (German).

 

What will I be asked in the interview?

During the interview, we are interested in learning more about your educational background as well as your previous experiences. We will also assess your language skills as well as check all required documents. Furthermore, your motivation to study International Product and Service Management is very important to us. Study our homepage diligently and ask yourself why it makes sense to study in Ansbach for you and why we should prefer you to competing applicants.

 

Study semester in Valencia, Spain (Focus: Service) or at our other partner universities

Is a semester in Valencia or one of the other partner universities obligatory?

No, you can complete the programme in Ansbach and most of our foreign students do so. All our students may choose to study abroad because they cherish the idea of further experiences abroad or because they want to study a specialisation which is not offered in Ansbach. Take a look at the specialisation possibilities explained on our homepage and make sure to inform yourself about special conditions concerning different offers abroad (content, costs and language requirements).

 

I am interested in spending a study semester in Valencia or at another partner university. Where do I apply?

Our international office handles applications for the university in Valencia or one of our other partner universities. You must organise everything you need for your visa and living arrangements yourself.

 

Should I go to Valencia in the summer or winter?

That depends on the specialisation you choose. Should you choose technologies in Ansbach then you should go to Valencia during the summer term for the project semester. You go to Valencia during the winter term if you choose the specialisation service. Our other partner universities offer different specialisations (see homepage), which you can study during the winter term. Only Valencia offers the project thesis during the summer term.

 

Do I have to speak Spanish to study in Valencia?

Some courses in the winter semester are only offered in Spanish. Therefore, we recommend some basic Spanish language skill. The programme during the summer term is completely offered in English. Nevertheless, basic Spanish skills are highly recommended.

 

Are there any extra fees for studying in Valencia or the other partner universities?

There are no additional study fees for Valencia. You might even apply for an Erasmus grant to help with living costs. If you opt for a Double degree, there are fees that must be paid for issuing the degree. For more information regarding fees, please refer to the website of the university in Valencia directly: http://www.upv.es/titulaciones/MUGEPS/indexc.html

Valencia is the only partner university which is regulated by Erasmus rules. All other universities charge tuition fees.

Practical orientation of the programme and internships

Is this Master's programme practically oriented?

Being a university of applied sciences, we are not only academically oriented but also in very close contact with companies. This allows us to incorporate practical knowledge that companies require from their applicants into our programmes. Furthermore, all our professors have at least five years of relevant professional experience outside of the university field. We do not directly help our students with their job search but do so indirectly by giving them the opportunity to get a good degree and learn German. Both form the basis for a successful job search.

 

Can I do an internship during my studies?

It is not mandatory to do an internship during this Master's programme except in the case you choose the option of a practical study semester for a general bridging semester. Even if this is not the case, you have the option of doing an internship. Please be aware that although this kind of internship is supervised and accompanied by the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences, you must find the internship independently. A voluntary internship is neither part of the course nor is it organised or supervised by the university.

You have to organise your internship by yourself but consider that firms in Germany have a long tradition of offering internships to students that are fluent in German. Please note that there are specific work restrictions for international students (especially for students from non-EU countries).

Further process after admission

I have received a letter of admission. What should I do next?

In the letter of admission, you will be informed about when you can register online. There you can also find which documents you have to upload. If the documents are not complete, enrolment cannot take place.

 

What are the required documents and important steps after my admission?
  • Apply for a visa
  • Upload passport photo to Primuss
  • Upload to Primuss your health insurance certificate OR exemption from statutory health insurance OR temporary travel health insurance until you get to Germany
  • Pay the semester fee (it must be paid before the semester starts; for further information please see your letter of admission)
 
What is statutory health insurance?

Foreign applicants are advised to obtain travel insurance from an insurance agency of their home country for travelling to German and spending their first days at Ansbach University of Applied Sciences (for max. 6 weeks). In order to cover the entire scope of insurance, they must insure themselves at a German insurance agency for statutory insurance during the enrolment at Ansbach University of Applied Sciences. Please note that some foreign insurances do not cover all services required by German authorities!
