Claims of hardship in master's programmes with restricted admission
5% of all available places (one place minimum) are reserved for cases of exceptional hardship.
Exceptional hardship applies particularly to cases where it is absolutely necessary for the applicant to begin their studies without delay due to health reasons or equally serious circumstances. Applicants who depend on Ulm as place of study due to exceptional family, social or economic circumstances may claim hardship as well.
Claims of hardship will be considered only from applicants who were not allocated a study place in the allocation procedure based on performance.
Dependence on study location in the interest of the public (Ortsbindung; mainly top athletes)
1% of the study places (with a minimum of one place) are allocated on the basis of dependence on study location in the interest of the public (Ortsbindung). This applies to applicants who fall into a certain category determined by the University, whose consideration is of particular interest to the public and who are tied to Ulm as place of study due to justified circumstances.
These are in particular applicants who belong to a national-level Olympic, prospective, supplementary or team sports squad or a junior squad 1 of the German Olympic Sports Confederation.
