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 student applicant without EU or EEA citizenship with a foreign university entrance qualification, you apply online and upload the documents required for the application as PDF files.

Application Portal and Deadlines

Applications for all undergraduate degree programmes are submitted via the heiCO application portal. The application deadline is a statutory deadline. Application documents received by Heidelberg University after the application deadline cannot be considered in the selection process.


Application Deadline

Winter Semester: 01.06. - 15.07. 

Admission procedure

The University allocates study places in accordance with the provisions of the Baden-Württemberg State Higher Education Act and the applicable subject-specific selection regulations/admission regulations or study and examination regulations.


Following successful admission, you will receive a request to accept your university place within a deadline displayed there in your heiCO account before you are able to continue with online registration. If you do not accept your university place by the deadline, your entitlement to the place will lapse.
