Admission to a degree programme


The admission procedure for bachelor/diploma and master programme is conducted online. You first have to apply for admission and upload the required documents (original and translation into German/English). An Apostille is not required. 

Plan on a few weeks processing time of your application, due to high number of applications. Please note: inadequate or missing documents prolong the processing time of your application. If this is the case, you may not be able to complete the admission procedure in the semester you've applied for. 

Step-by-step descriptions regarding the application procedure, a list of required documents and current application and admission deadlines are available on the details page of the degree programme of your choice

Information about doctoral/PhD programmes is available on the website of the Center for Doctoral Studies.
