Selection criteria

Bachelor’s programmes with unrestricted admission

Bachelor’s programmes with unrestricted admission do not require a selection procedure; however, proof of a sufficient number of study achievements acceptable for credit must be submitted.  Application possibilities must, however, be observed.

Vacant places in bachelor’s programmes with restricted admission are given to applicants with respective level of education and study times in accordance with the semester they apply for.

Bachelor’s programmes with restricted admission

The allocation of places is carried out in the following order:

  1. waitlist successors - applicants with admission in the first semester of the programme at Ulm University in which they apply for the higher semester at Ulm University;
  2. applicants switching universities/resuming studies - applicants with admission at a German or other higher education institution in one of the EU Member States in the study programme in which they apply for the higher semester at Ulm University;
  3. lateral entrants - other applicants.

In the case of equal scores among these groups, priority is given to those with the highest number of credit points / study achievements in the programme. Next deciding factor is the overall grade in the higher education entrance qualification. If the scores are still even, the decision is made by lottery.
