APPLICANTS FROM NON-EU/EEA COUNTRIES REGISTRATION FOR SUBJECTS WITH NO ADMISSION RESTRICTIONS OR ENTRANCE EXAMINATIONS
Subjects without admission restrictions or entrance examinations are subject only to an access restriction.
International applicants from non-EU/EEA countries with a non-German university entrance qualification must submit an application for admission directly to Heidelberg University for all subjects studied at Bachelor level, or with a concluding state examination. Places for study are allocated by the University.
All applications that arrive by the application deadline and fulfil the formal requirements, will be reviewed to ensure that the applicant meets all legal requirements for admission to a degree programme at the University.
About the Procedure
Some degree programmes may be subject only to an access restriction. Places for study are allocated by the University.
The University allocates places according to the conditions set out in the State Law on Higher Education in Baden-Wuerttemberg (Landeshochschulgesetz Baden-Württemberg) and the Admission and Immatriculation Regulations of Heidelberg University. Generally, provided that an applicant fulfils all legal requirements for admission, he or she is able to enrol in a degree programme without admission restrictions or an entrance examination. Admission to some degree programmes without admission restrictions and entrance examinations is nonetheless subject to specific, additional requirements. Information on such requirements can be found in the respective selection regulations/admission regulations.
Fees for international students
International students from non-EU/EEA countries with a non-German university entrance qualification must pay tuition fees for certain degree programmes.
