In the winter semester 2019/20, admission to certain undergraduate study programmes with restricted admission is granted after a national “Dialogorientiertes Serviceverfahren” (dialogue-oriented service procedure (DoSV)), run by the "Stiftung für Hochschulzulassung – hochschulstart.de":

  • BSc Biological Sciences
  • BSc Life Science
  • BSc Mathematical Finance
  • BA Politics and Public Administration
  • BSc Psychology
  • Law – First Examination in Law
  • BSc Sport Science
  • BA Linguistics
  • BSc Economics

Key dates concerning the phases in the DoSV

The dialogue-oriented service procedure (DoSV) consists of four phases with their own periods and deadlines. If there are any remaining positions in a study programme, then hochschulstart uses a clearing procedure to allocate them by lottery.

Universities may also offer their own clearing procedures. For more information, please contact our university staff.
