INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS FROM NON-EU/EEA COUNTRIES DIALOGUE-ORIENTED SERVICE PROCEDURE (DOSV)
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.
Please note that for some access-restricted degree programmes, the admission procedure is organised via the dialogue-oriented service procedure (DoSV). In such cases, applications from German applicants, as well as from international applicants from EU/EEA countries and/or those with a German university entrance qualification, are considered as part of this procedure. The admission procedure for applicants from non-EU/EEA countries with a non-German university entrance qualification is organised directly by Heidelberg University for all degree programmes that have university-internal selection procedures.
About the Procedure
Places for degree subjects with university-internal selection procedures will be allocated directly by Heidelberg University.
Heidelberg University allocates places in accordance with the selection criteria set forth in the Act governing the allocation of places at institutes of higher education (Hochschulvergabeverordnung - HVVO).
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.
ADMISSION AND COURSE REQUIREMENTS
Applicants for any degree programme (Bachelor’s degree or state examination) at Heidelberg University must hold a university entrance qualification, and have very good German language skills. When assessing non-German qualifications, Heidelberg University applies the evaluation framework provided by the Central Office for Foreign Education (Zentralstelle für ausländisches Bildungswesen, ZAB).
