If you wish to receive admission to a higher semester in a degree program at the University of Freiburg, you first need to determine whether admission to this degree program is restricted in higher semesters or not. You’ll find this information in the description of your chosen field on the list of fields of study.

 

Is admission to the degree program NOT restricted in higher semesters?

Then contact the relevant degree program coordinator/departmental academic advisor. You’ll also find this information in the description of your chosen field of study on the list of fields of study, under “Advising.” With the degree program coordinator, you clarify on the basis of your previous studies whether you can be placed in a higher semester of study. The degree program coordinator’s suggestion concerning your placement is certified by the relevant examination office. You can use this certificate to matriculate at the Registration Office during the matriculation period.

In the field of law (state examination), you do not need a letter of approval for transfer of credits. You will be matriculated in the following semester of study, as stated on your certificate of matriculation. After the 4th semester of study, however, you must provide evidence that you have completed your intermediate examination.

 

Is admission to the degree program restricted in higher semesters?

Then you must apply for admission to this degree program during the application period. You can only be admitted to a higher semester in these degree programs if you fulfill the criteria for higher semesters of study laid down in the selection statutes. You can find the selection statutes in the description of your field on the list of fields of study, under “Statutes.”
For the coming winter semester, we’ve collected all information for these types of application on an informational leaflet.
The application itself must be completed on the online application portal. You need to register on the portal before you can apply. For higher semesters in Master's programmes, applications should be sent by post using a form to: Universität Freiburg, Sedanstraße 6, 79098 Freiburg.
