    Application in the dialogue-oriented service procedure for prospective students at Bielefeld University

    © Universität Bielefeld

Application in the dialogue-oriented service procedure (DoSV)

Many universities have admission restrictions (NC) for certain degree programmes. Prospective students therefore often apply for several degree programmes at different locations. As a result, they often receive several offers of admission/admission offers, which can block study places for a while and make succession procedures necessary.

The dialogue-oriented service procedure supports universities in their admission procedures by centrally comparing offers of admission/admission offers. This prevents an application from receiving multiple admissions. Admission is only granted for the study programme with the highest, self-selected priority. Study places with a lower priority can then be allocated to other applicants without delay.

All further information on the application and the DoSV process can also be found on the website.
