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.
