EU/EEA CITIZENS AND INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS WITH A GERMAN UNIVERSITY ENTRANCE QUALIFICATIONINTERNAL UNIVERSITY SELECTION PROCEDURE

Formal applications must be made for subjects with a university-internal selection procedure. The applicants’ aptitude and motivation for the chosen degree programme and future career is a crucial factor in the selection procedure.

In concrete terms, this means that in addition to the average final grade as stated in the school leaving certificate, applicants’ grades in German, mathematics and one foreign language, as well as in subjects relevant to the chosen field of study may be taken into account. Furthermore, internships, extracurricular activities, and vocational training can also play a role in selection. Interviews and aptitude tests may be conducted. How the individual criteria are combined and weighted in the individual subjects is defined in the respective selection regulations.

The application requirements for applicants who are citizens of European Union (EU) member states or of the European Economic Area (EEA) are essentially the same as those for German citizens. These requirements also apply for applicants with a German university entrance qualification/Abitur or from a German international school (so-called “Bildungsinländer”).

As the information on the procedure for international applicants with a German university entrance qualification or for EU/EEA citizens may differ slightly, it will be presented separately in the following.
