An overview of the steps prior to taking up studies

Preface: It is a basic principle of our education system, that applicants/students have to be self-responsible. Nothing is done automatically. The applicants or students always have to initiative. The INFOTECH Office will support as much as possible, but will never make any decision on behalf of the applicant/student.
So, a few points:
  • Deadlines are deadlines. There are no acceptable reasons for not keeping deadlines.
  • Different to other parts of the world, admission to a German university is only the right to take up studies and - after fulfillment of all obligations of the study- and examination regulation - receiving the academic degree. It does not include anything further. E.g. dormitories, if needed, have to be requested separately, using the defined procedure. 
  • Scholarships, granted by whom so ever, does not change the above statements.
A typical sequence of actions and deadlines along an application/enrolment process are displayed below.
