To study on a Bachelor's degree course, you must have an entrance qualification for universities of applied sciences or a general or subject-specific higher education entrance qualification. Graduates of the master craftsman's examination, vocational further training examinations equivalent to the master craftsman's examination and technical schools and academies can also study at a university under certain conditions.
For individual degree courses, universities may also require training in a profession corresponding to the chosen field of study or practical work experience (pre-study practice).
For degree courses in design, architecture and interior design, an aptitude test must also be passed as proof of artistic aptitude.
Studying on a Master's degree course requires a first university degree; the universities also specify further admission requirements.
Further information can be obtained directly from the student advisory service and other relevant offices (admissions, enrolment, study office, etc.) at the respective university.
University studies generally begin in the winter semester (October 1).
Enrolment is required for all degree courses (matriculation).
For a number of degree courses, formal admission is required prior to enrolment (restricted-admission degree courses). In these cases, there are strict deadlines for receipt of the application for admission by the university.
The aptitude tests required for some degree programs may take place before this deadline. Please enquire at the respective university in good time about the applicable deadlines.
The university may require pre-registration prior to enrolment for degree programs that are not subject to admission restrictions.
At some universities, it is also possible to start in the summer semester (March 15) for some degree programs.
Further information can be obtained directly from the student advisory service and other responsible offices (admissions, enrollment, student office, etc.) at the respective university.
