Deadlines and Fees

The Master program in Digital Games begins each year in the winter term (mid-September), with the applications taking place in the spring.

Application Process

  • Beginning of March: Publication of the application tasks on CGL’s website. Applicants will have four weeks to complete them.
  • March 31st: Deadline for the registration through CGL’s website, which entails uploading the completed application task (your research and development project), a portfolio, a high school diploma, university degree, and a CV. Applicants that don’t have their final Bachelor’s degree by the end of March can apply at this stage with their latest transcript of records as long as they expect to receive their final degree by September. The Uni-Assist application* can be sent from February 1st to March 31st.**
  • June: Interviews.

There are no tuition fees. However, TH Köln charges a general fee of approximately 265 EUR per semester which includes a ticket for public transportation in the area of North Rhine-Westphalia, including the cities of Cologne, Bonn, and Düsseldorf.

*Note: The Uni-Assist application does not replace the application through CGL’s website! International students have to do both applications.

**Note: International applicants who don’t have their Bachelor’s degree by March 31 can apply to Uni-Assist with a certified copy of their latest transcript of records (with translation, if necessary) and a letter saying that they will receive their final degree later. Applicants should have their final degree by September.
