Definition: Admission regulations

For study programmes with a restriction on admission, the formal admission requirements are definded in a so-called "Zugangs- und Zulassungsordnung" (admission and special language regulation). These regulations define in detail whether, for example, an internship or an entrance examination is required to apply for a specific Bachelor's or Master's degree programme. They are in German language only. However, we provide translations for information purposes only. In the event of any inconsistency between the German version and the English version, only the German version shall apply.
