Changes in the application process for German-language Bachelor programs (starting summer term 2017)

Starting with the application period for the summer semester 2017, all applications for German-taught Bachelor courses have to be submitted via uni-assist. This includes applications for admission to the degree programs, for direct admission to the DSH and the preparatory German language course.

All applications for Master courses, as well as for Bachelor and Master degree courses of the International Studies in Engineering (ISE) program have to be submitted via the online application system of the International Office.

The start of the application period for the summer semester 2017
is the November 3, 2016.


Applications for Bachelor Programs in German

Due to a sharp increase in application numbers and an unforeseeable staff shortage, we will make it our priority to process applications for a study course within the usual six to eight weeks.

Applications for German language courses will likely take longer and can only be processed if the applicant provides a certificate for a successfully completed B1 level (CEFR) German language course.


New DSH-Requirements

From March 2015 the minimum language requirement for registration for the DSH Examination will be raised to C1 on the CEFR. Applications for an examination place in March must be accompanied by proof that level C1 has already been successfully completed. This may come in the form of a certificate or explicit confirmation from a language school that the level C1 has been successfully completed. This proof must be submitted at the time of application for the DSH Examination. Confirmations which only state the number and/or hours of German classes will no longer be accepted.
