The dialogue-oriented service procedure consists of four phases each with its own periods and deadlines that have to be respected. At the end of this procedure two so-called clearing procedures take place. In the clearing procedure places that have not been, up to that point, allocated are distributed.
The higher education institutions can, independent of this clearing procedure, offer their own procedures for moving up the ladder and drawing lots. Please ask for the application deadlines for these procedures directly at the higher education institution.
