Process for the allocation of study places

The following information explains how study places are allocated at the University of Augsburg.

 

The process depends on whether you are applying for the first semester or for a higher semester and whether the desired degree programme has restricted (NC) or open admission.

 

 

How can I gain a study place in the first semester?

You would like to study at the University of Augsburg, have decided which degree programme you want to study, and you now want to know how the admission process works so that you can enrol?

 

The process largely depends on whether you want to enrol in a restricted admission (NC) or an open admission degree programme.

How do I gain a study place in a higher semester?

You have already completed some academic study and would like to have it counted towards your new degree programme at the University of Augsburg? Here, too, it is important whether you are interested in a degree programme with open or restricted admission.

 

Please note that you do not need to register on hochschulstart.de if you are applying for a higher semester. Applications for a higher semester are only possible via the VIBS portal.

 

 

  • Open admission degree programmes (without NC)

 

For degree programmes with open admission, a direct application or enrolment in a higher subject semester is not possible and also not required. You select the desired degree programme in the application portal (only the first semester is available here) and enrol in it. Please note the following information on open admission degree programmes.

 

After enrolment, you can apply for a credit transfer at the examinations office. If you have enough ECTS credit points, you will then be upgraded to the corresponding semester.

 

For open admission degree programmes, enrolment documents must be received by the University of Augsburg by 31.03.2024 at the latest.

 

 

  • Restricted admission degree programmes (with NC)

 

With restricted admission degree programmes, you must apply directly for the desired subject semester, as all subject semesters are subject to admission restrictions. Law (Rechtswissenschaft, EJP) is an exception, with restricted admission applying only in the first subject semester. Please note that admission to the winter and summer semesters is only possible for different subject semesters.

 

You must apply for admission to a higher subject semester by 15.01.2024 at the latest. This means that your admission request (Antrag auf Zulassung), which you can print out after applying online, must be received by us in writing by this date. The date on the postmark is not sufficient.

 

In order to have previous study credits reviewed, please submit an overview of your previous studies. This must be submitted by 31.03.2024 at the latest.

 

The allocation of study places for higher semesters is only possible if admission numbers have not been exceeded in the semester in question and in the degree programme as a whole.

 

If there are study places available, admission is possible if evidence of the required number of credit points is provided, according to enrolment regulations.

 

Important: Due to this process, admission may only be granted shortly before the start of the lecture period.

 

You can find an overview of the required number of credit points in the table below.
