Would you like to apply for admission?

You can apply for admission at any time during the year. Most degree programmes begin in the Autumn Semester (September), but a few also start in the Spring Semester (March). The application process is handled by the respective department. For programmes in the arts, acceptance is based on a portfolio review. For drama and eurythmy, applicants must audition. For courses in the sciences, the selection procedure includes a personal interview. More information on the application process is available under Degree Programmes.

The documents that must be submitted to apply for each course of study are listed on page 1 of the application form.

Applications must be submitted in writing (not digitally) and should generally include the following:

  • Completed application form
  • Curriculum vitae and a Letter of Motivation
  • Officially certified copies of school leaving certificate and report (officially certified and stamped German translation of foreign certificates)
  • Certificate of registration from a German health insurance provider to submit to the university (a copy of the insurance card is not sufficient)
  • For drama courses: a medical certificate of good health
  • Passport photo (for business courses 2 passport photos)
  • Foreign applicants require proof of sufficient German language skills (TestDaF or an equivalent certificate)

Applicants to the Master’s course additionally require the following documents:
