Admission to undergraduate and graduate study programmes is governed by the admission regulations of the University of Konstanz. They contain vital information for all prospective students and supplement the applicable legal regulations, especially the Landeshochschulgesetz (state law on higher education), the Hochschulzulassungsgesetz (state law on higher education admissions) and the Hochschulvergabeverordnung Baden-Württemberg (state law on awarding admission to higher education programmes with admission restrictions).
Currently, only a limited number of examination regulations is available in English. We are working to resolve this and apologise for the inconvenience.
Admission regulations for first-degree programmes
These regulations only apply to undergraduate study programmes with restricted admission (a minimum grade of admission (NC)). The regulations mainly describe the selection process on the basis of assessment criteria or an entrance examination.
