Step 4: Online application

Once you have clarified all the requirements for the degree programme, you can apply during the application phase via the online portal of the Admissions Office.

Application period

The online application is only possible in the following phases:

  • Winter term: 01 June - 15 July
  • Summer term: 01 December - 15 January

Online application

For most degree programmes (Bachelor and Master) you apply online at the Admissions Office:

  • If your online application is successful, you will receive a control sheet with your applicant number via email. You can use this applicant number to find out about the status of your application in the Admissions Infoportal.
  • After submitting your online application, you must upload your documents to the Infoportal of the Admissions Office.
  • The Admissions Office will then check your application.
  • You will receive all further information (e.g. incomplete documents, acceptance to the study place) via the Infoportal of the Admissions Office.

Individual documents cannot be submitted after you have completed your application!

Please also note:

Some Master's programmes have separate application procedures: Please review the homepage of the respective degree programme.

As soon as your application for a Master's programme is complete, your documents will be forwarded to the respective department. They will check whether your studies are recognised for the intended Master's programme (equivalence check/check of content and subject-specific requirements).
