Proof of English proficiency at B2 level is required.
Non-EU applicants (without German school-leaving certificate): The recognition and grade conversion of non-EU (and non-German EU) higher education entrance qualifications is carried out by the University’s International Admissions Office.

The LAS Program aims to educate responsible citizens who are able to approach complex problems from multiple perspectives. Rather than aiming to prepare students for a specific profession, it equips them for civic engagement and a range of careers in a changing labor market in and outside academia. To this end, the program fosters a process of intellectual growth and personal development in an interdisciplinary and international learning community. For students interested in an academic career, it provides an excellent basis for entrance into (specialized) Master and PhD programs. The program combines specialization at a high academic level with a broad interdisciplinary foundation. It provides an educational framework of required Modules and combines it with a substantial degree of freedom for students to develop their own study profile. The curriculum consists of three integrated components: The Core (66 ECTS) includes reflection on knowledge and sciences – the key to interdisciplinary education and training –, a curriculum on Responsibility and Leadership, and general academic skills. Students specialize in one of four Majors (102 ECTS): (1) Earth and Environmental Sciences, (2) Life Sciences, (3) Governance, (4) Culture and History. In the Electives (72 ECTS), students can choose from a variety of courses and projects to further shape their profile and / or use these credits for courses taken abroad.


Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Official Announcements of the Albert-Ludwigs University of Freiburg in Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.

The tables with the results of the last selection processes allow you to see the assigned grade/number of points in the selection process which would have sufficed and what the waiting period would have been to secure admission. The assigned grade/number of points is based by subject on the average grade or weighted grades achieved in the German higher education entrance qualification, on test results and/or outcome of the selection interview, and also on professional or practical experience in the respective subject.

Prerequisite for the admission was the successful participation in the entrance exam.
