The process of applying

To pursue a degree, you must meet the requirements, apply, and enrol.

You will find information about the admission requirements of individual study programmes and fields of study in the Study Programme Database.

For undergraduate study programmes (bachelor’s degree, state examination, and Diplom study programmes), you usually just need a valid secondary school leaving certificate. However, in some subjects there are additional requirements, for example, passing aptitude tests or fulfilling certain language requirements. Some study programmes and fields of study also have admission restrictions (“numerus clausus” or “NC”).

For advanced study programmes, such as master's programmes, there are often more complex requirements to fulfil. You will find details about this in the Study Programme Database.


For applications for the higher semester in medicine, dentistry and pharmacy as well as for some master's degree programs [pdf, 102 kb] de please use the new Friedolin 2.0 applicant portal.
