Studies; information about universities of applied sciences / technical universities

You can find out more about the universities of applied sciences / technical universities in Bavaria.

Description

Prerequisites

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.

Deadlines

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.

Required documents

  • Documents for the application for a study place or enrollment for the respective study program can be obtained directly from the responsible offices (admission, enrollment, student office, etc.) of the respective university.

Fees

  • Studies up to the first professionally qualifying degree (Bachelor) and studies in a consecutive degree program leading to a further professionally qualifying degree (Master) are free of tuition fees.

    Continuing education: The universities charge fees for the studies of visiting students and for the participation of students in special continuing education courses; participants in a continuing education course who are not students or visiting students, as well as students who participate exclusively in courses offered at a foreign location outside the European Union, are charged a fee under private law.

    Extra-occupational studies: The universities charge fees in accordance with the increased costs of studying on an extra-occupational course. The amount of the fees is calculated according to the costs incurred by the university and the importance of the service for the students or visiting students.

    Every student enrolled at a Bavarian state university must pay a semester fee per semester. The semester fee is made up of the basic fee (student union fee) and, if applicable, the solidarity fee for the semester ticket in the respective public transport association. The semester fee is charged by the respective university and must be paid before enrollment.

    Further information can be obtained directly from the student advisory service and other responsible offices (admissions, enrollment, student office, etc.) at the respective university.
