Admission limits (NC) in restricted-admission degree programmes

Admission limits (NC - numerus clausus) are recalculated every semester on the basis of the current application pool. Therefore, the limits listed below do not provide an accurate measure of whether your application will meet future admission requirements based on average grade or waiting time. Nonetheless, the limits of past years can offer you a certain degree of guidance.

  • Bachelor's programmes / State examination programmes
    (EU/EEA applicants and non-mobile foreign students (Bildungsinländer))

    You can view the admission limits for degree programmes in Medicine, Pharmacy and Dentistry on the website of the Stiftung für Hochschulzulassung.

  • Bachelor's programmes / State examination degree programmes (non-EU/non-EEA applicants)

    A legally mandated proportion of study places in restricted-admission bachelor's programmes and state examination degree programmes are reserved for applicants from non-EU countries. Study places are allocated primarily on the basis of the average grade of the applicant's university entrance qualification (see admission limits). Because the number of non-EU applications varies in every application round, we cannot offer you a reliable prognosis of what your average grade will have to be in order to gain admission to any specific restricted subject. As a rule of thumb, the more popular the subject is, the higher your average grade will have to be in order to secure a study place.

    For example, Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy are extremely popular subjects. Past experience shows that candidates usually require an excellent average grade in order to even have a chance of receiving a study place. Other popular subjects include Business Administration, Psychology and Communication Science.

  • Master of Education (MEd)

    Since the winter semester 2014, candidates can apply for admission to the "Master of Education LABG 2009" degree programme. In past semesters, all applicants have been granted admission. This can change from semester to semester depending on the number of applicants.
