FAQs about the application deadlines

Please note that these FAQs do not apply to the course of study Medicine (state examination).

Please submit your application after you have received your school leaving certificate. You will only officially obtain your higher education entrance qualification (HZB) when you receive your school leaving certificate. There are no disadvantages if you apply later, as the date of receipt of your application is not relevant for the allocation of places. Only the application deadlines are relevant in this case.
