The admission procedure starts when the deadline is closed. Generally, the acceptance letters for bachelor's programs will be sent 2-3 days afterwards. Once the study places are full, further candidates are placed on the waiting list and receive an acceptance letter when another students rejects his/her study place. Rejected applicants may either keep their application active for the following semester, or request their application documents back.
The acceptance or rejection letters for master's programs are usually sent about 1 week after the application deadline.

In order to best serve our students, program size is limited. For the bachelor's programs, the university reserves 5% of study places for applicants with claims of hardship; 8% of places are reserved for non-EU applicants; 2% of places are reserved for applicants who have a previous degree. The remaining places are allocated as follows: 90% according to applicant’s ranking position, 10% according to wait list.
The applicant’s ranking position is determined by weighing different criteria such as university entrance qualification score, other school grades, previous job qualifications, and job experience. For details, please see the respective Zulassungssatzung (regulations) for each degree program at Downloads (German-language).
Main criteria for Master’s programs: previous field of study, final grades from first degree. Applicants are ranked according to eligibility, as the study places are limited. The final average of the bachelor's degree must be handed in until start of lectures at the latest.
