Application procedure

Entrance examination procedure

International applicants from non-EU/EEA countries with a non-German university entrance qualification must submit an application for admission for all subjects studied at Bachelor level, or with a concluding “state examination”, to Heidelberg University. The places for study are allocated by the University.

Specific admission requirements

In courses of study with an entrance examination, proof of additional qualifications is linked to the admission. Information on the additional qualifications required can be found in the subject-specific selection rules 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.

Required documents

As an international applicant from a non-EU/EEA country with a non-German university entrance qualification, you must submit the documents required for the entrance examination procedure to the University admissions department by post, or in person to the admissions department for international applicants. Documents must be submitted by the deadline.  

Application Portal and Deadlines

Applications for all undergraduate degree programmes must be made via the online application platform for prospective international students. The pdf file generated by the platform at the end of the online application procedure must be printed and signed by the applicant. It must then be submitted along with all necessary documents to the University before the application deadline. The application deadline constitutes a statutory cut-off period. Application documents submitted to Heidelberg University after the application deadline has passed will not be considered in the selection procedure.
