Study places that remain open, or that open again after the closing of regular admissions, are distributed by lottery. In study programs with entrance examinations, it only makes sense to enter the lottery if you already passed the entrance examination prior to doing so.
The lottery only applies to Bachelor’s study programs (B.Sc., B.A. und B.A. teaching degree) when applying for the 1st regular semester. There are no lotteries for Master’s study programs.
To apply within the lottery, please register on hochschulstart.
Please check the German website for further information on the lottery.
