The general application deadlines for international applicants are as follows:
- 15 January (Summer Semester)
- 15 July (Winter Semester)
The deadlines apply both to applications for the first semester of study and to applications for higher semesters.
Some programmes may have different deadlines. Please look up this information via the Programme Finder or by visiting the homepage of the degree programme to which you are applying.
Please note that all documents must be received by the deadline. Unfortunately, applications that are incomplete at the time of the deadline cannot be considered. Please submit your application as soon as possible so that we can inform you of any missing documents. If anything is missing, you will then still have one last chance to complete your application by the deadline.
- Deadlines for applications with uni-assist (preliminary document review procedure)Hide
If an application via uni-assist is required for your degree programme, please note that it may take 6-8 weeks for uni-assist to process your application and issue the preliminary document review (VPD). We therefore recommend submitting your application to uni-assist (together with all documents) by 15 November for Summer Semester and by 15 May for Winter Semester. Please also note that uni-assist can only start processing your application once the fee has been paid or an exemption has been granted.
- Deadlines for the StudienkollegHide
The general application deadlines also apply to applications for the Studienkolleg. However, we recommend that applicants who already know that they have to apply for the Studienkolleg submit their applications by 15 June (Winter Semester) or 15 December (Summer Semester), as the entrance examinations for the Studienkolleg usually take place in February or September and it can otherwise be difficult to obtain a visa in time or to make travel arrangements.
