Information on the procedure

It is necessary to make an application to both study programmes with admission restriction as well as study programmes without admission restrictions.

However, in the case of applications that are completely exempt from admission, the request for enrolment can subsequently be submitted directly online. For certain study programmes you may be required to take aptitude tests with varying deadlines. Both points apply whether applying for first semester studies or for applications to higher semesters. In any case, please pay attention to the respective application and enrollment deadlines.

Apply now!
