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.
* The higher education institutions have the opportunity within this period of time to specify a shorter, individual application phase, i.e. it may occur that it is only possible for winter term to apply after the 15th of October, or that the application for a specific course of study has to be initiated before the 15th of April. Information on the definitive period of time for application for your desired course of study may be received directly in the application portal.
Please observe that the legally binding information about deadlines for applicants who attained their higher education entrance qualification in a previous year (Alt-Abiturienten), the participating courses and deadlines are to be found on the web site of the higher education institution itself.
