Programme objectives

Within the bachelor's programme, students gain fundamental knowledge in the field of mathematics, in-depth knowledge of stochastics, especially mathematical statistics and its application. They gain the skill to analyse, model and solve problems using mathematical and statistical processes. As well as confident application of statistical methods and processes, programming-related implementation in education also plays an important role.

Students are prepared for professional work as statisticians in various areas of application. Graduates are capable of demonstrating statistical problems and their solutions clearly and understandably and working on an inter-disciplinary basis.

Degree course content

The study programme consists of basic training in mathematics and in-depth training in statistics, courses in information technology which are tailored to the needs of a statistician and sound fundamental courses in various areas of application from engineering, business and natural sciences, especially environmental and bio-sciences. The course content is combined with practical exercises throughout the programme.

A three-month work placement forms part of the programme.

Admission requirements

A higher education entrance qualification is a general prerequisite for admittance to the programme of study. International applicants must provide proof of educational qualifications that permit study in Germany (school-leaving certificate, certificate of university attendance). 

The DAAD database on admission requirements allows international students to check whether they meet the requirements for the degree programme of their choice in Germany.

The language of instruction is German. Foreign applicants must prove they have adequate knowledge of German. Evidence of the necessary German language skills can be provided in the form of:

  • Goethe Certificate C2
  • DSD II
  • DSH II
  • TestDaF (minimun 16 total points & minimun level3 in the examination modules)
  • TELC Deutsch C1 Hochschule
  • ÖSD C2
  • evidence of having passed the entrance examination at a preparatory college

In addition, mathematical competences must be proven by attaining the final grade "satisfactory" in mathematics.

Applicants who are unable to fulfil the admission requirements may contact a preparatory college (‘Studienkolleg’). These specifically prepare foreign applicants for a course of study in Germany. Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences does not have its own preparatory college. The state-run preparatory college responsible for our institution is located at Anhalt University of Applied Sciences in Köthen.
