Step 1 – How do I choose a degree programme?

 We are pleased that you are interested in studying at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE). When choosing your future degree programme, you should ask yourself the following questions:

  • What am I interested in studying?
  • Does the University of Duisburg-Essen offer my choice of degree programmes?
  • Do I have an alternative (second choice of programme)?
  • Does my chosen programme have admission restrictions (numerus clausus)?
  • Does the degree programme begin in the winter and/or the summer semester?
  • Are there any language and/or special entrance requirements?
  • Where and by when do I have to apply?
  • Which documents should I send with my application?
