Application

 

Next semester for which it is possible to apply for: winter semester 2021/22

 

ATTENTION!

Changes in the study program are pending. Whether these will already be applied in the winter semester 2021/22 or only in the following semester has not yet been determined. The most important upcoming change: The study program will become bilingual (German and English speaking). I.e., for non-native speakers, in addition to a language certificate for English, a certificate for German will already be required at the time of application.

Furthermore, due to the Corona crisis, there is again a slight shift in the application period:

 

International applicants (from outside the EU)
Estimated: 01st June until 30th June 2021
(Usually: 15th April until 15th May)

Applicants from the European Union and Germany
Estimated: 01st July until 31st July 2021
(Usually:16th May until 30th June)
