Admissions procedure

What do you need to know about the admissions procedure?

Make sure you’re well-prepared for all aspects of the selection process.

We’d like to get to know you

You’ve already familiarised yourself with the admission requirements and submitted your online application – next comes the most decisive step; completing the admissions procedure.

Why do universities of applied sciences have a selective admissions procedure? The answer is really quite simple: under the University of Applied Sciences Studies Act (FHStG) we have to follow a selection procedure if the number of applicants exceeds the number places on the programme.

How are university places allocated?

The decision as to whether or not we can offer you a university place depends on several factors. Some of the elements we assess include the quality of your letter of application, your personal motivation, your persuasiveness, and your performance in the programme-specific application interview.

After you’ve completed the interview and other aspects of the admission procedure, we’ll inform you about our decision as quickly as possible by e-mail. We’re looking for an above-average assessment score. If you’re successful, you’ll receive a letter of acceptance shortly after the interview.

Applicants with an average assessment score will be put on a waiting list, and offered a place if one becomes available. A rejection letter will only be sent if your performance is assessed as below the required level.

We will contact you with new information

For administrative reasons and due to data protection laws, we are unable to provide any information concerning personal data or the results of the admissions procedure outside the official processes.

Educational contract: Rights and responsibilities

Unlike a public university, the legal relationship between a university of applied sciences and its students is governed by private law and regulated in an educational contract. After the programme-specific admission procedure has been successfully completed, you will receive an educational contract that determines the mutual rights and obligations. Further details can be found in this sample of an educational contract. Please note that this document is a non-binding sample and subject to modifications.
