Step 1: Choose a degree programme

What should I study? Finding the right degree programme to suit you is not always easy.

Therefore, the Ruhr University has compiled detailed information on all degree programmes and offers individual counselling for those needing extra assistance in finding the best fitting programme for them.

From Accounting to Wirtschaftswissenschaft: An overview of the degree programmes offered (Bachelor, Master or Staatsexamen) can be found here:

Specific requirements

Some degree programmes are restricted by a numerus clausus (NC). Since there are more applicants than places, admission is based on certain criteria. As a rule, your university entrance qualification must have a certain grade point average. The required grade point average is not fixed in advance, but is determined each semester. In some degree programmes there are further selection criteria (e.g. selection interviews) and admission requirements (e.g. further language skills).
