Application procedure

Entrance examination procedure

Places for study of subjects which are considered particularly challenging, or for which specific skills or aptitudes are considered necessary, are allocated by the University exclusively on the basis of an entrance examination procedure. Regardless of whether or not a degree programme is admission-restricted, the entrance examination procedure indicates the applicant’s suitability for the programme, as well as his or her motivation for study.

Specific admission requirements

The university allocates places according to the criteria specified in the selection and admission regulations. If not regulated in the subject-specific selection and admission regulations the subject-specific study and examination regulations may also stipulate the access and admission requirements to be fulfilled. Further details can be found in the corresponding regulations.
