Master Degree Programs

DTMD University offers only postgraduate master's degree programs. As an internationally operating university under Luxembourg law, located in Wiltz Castle, it emphasizes program-accredited courses of study at an international level.

In this context, postgraduate means that a successfully completed undergraduate degree program is required for admission, i.e. at least a Bachelor's degree (education level 6 according to Bologna or Bruges-Copenhagen criteria).In addition, DTMD University opens its application-oriented postgraduate Master's programs to applicants (in the following, all persons are referred to in the generic masculine in a gender- and inclusion-friendly manner) with completed vocational training and several years of professional experience, if training and professional activity represent a direct subject-related connection to the study program. DTMD University examines individually whether a graduate is admitted to the master's program. The admission requirements were the subject of the accreditation.

In special cases, for example in the absence of a previous degree, DTMD University may make admission to the master's program subject to additional requirements. Admission can then take place, for example, by means of a suitability determination procedure.

The master's program at DTMD University is called consecutive because it builds on a previous degree in terms of time and content. In addition, it may be that a desired career goal can only be achieved via the second training step. In this regard, a consecutive master's degree is not a second degree if the degree is taken for the first time as an advanced program. For students at DTMD University, however, the master's program there is always a second degree because they have completed university training in medicine, dentistry or medical technology due to their professional activities.


The master's program at DTMD University qualifies students in scientific work and methodology. To this end, the course of study imparts theoretical-analytical skills on the one hand and enables graduates to adapt openly and creatively to new conditions in professional life on the other (advanced training).

The Master of Science (M. Sc.) degree awarded by DTMD University is a professional degree and documents special professional competence in the qualification specified in the master's designation. It also allows students to pursue advanced doctoral studies at DTMD University and numerous colleges and universities around the world.

The master's program at DTMD University, including credit-bearing prerequisite courses, as suggested by the German Rectors' Conference, usually takes two to four semesters. It serves both to scientifically deepen a previous study and to open up new fields of knowledge as well as to round off and validate practical skills and experience. In addition to successful attendance of courses, a master's thesis must be written.

Due to legal requirements, students must provide a combined total of 300 credit points from their bachelor's and master's degree programs to earn a master's degree. This may result in a so-called CP gap for some students. In these cases, DTMD University offers students, upon request, the option of earning additional credit points through practical work until the master's thesis is submitted.

With the Master's thesis, the author provides proof that he/she has independently worked on or solved a task from the respective subject area according to scientific methods within a specified period of time.

Upon request, DTMD University may also evaluate as consecutive studies that are not taken in the department in which the student completed his or her bachelor's degree. In this case, the applicant must provide evidence of an appropriate content-related technical reference.
