A prescribed number of study places are available in every restricted-admission subject. After deducting a certain quota of places for hardship cases and second-degree applicants, 20 % of the study places are awarded based on the (preliminary) average grade in the respective subject, and 80 % are allocated through the university-wide selection procedure.
In this procedure, the applicant's (preliminary) average grade in the respective subject is improved by 0.1 for each waiting semester. A maximum of seven waiting semesters can be taken into consideration (i.e. cumulative max. 0.7 grade points). "Waiting time" corresponds to the number of semesters in which the applicant was not enrolled at a German university since receiving his/her bachelor-level teaching degree. The number of waiting semesters is calculated automatically based on the data provided in the application.
On the grade ranking list, applicants with the same (improved) average grade are ranked further based on whether they performed military or civil service and are subsequently placed at their exact rank by the drawing of lots. All candidates who apply for enrolment in restricted-admission subjects are ranked on the basis of both their (preliminary) average grade and the university-wide selection procedure.
In the winter semester 2021/22, not all applicants could be admitted to all subjects with admission restrictions. Please note that this may also be possible in other subjects (German, English, Education, Social Sciences) in the future.
