The dialog-oriented service procedure is being used by more and more universities in Germany. It consists of a portal on which applicants can apply for admission to up to twelve degree programs at different universities.

The application process involves the following steps:

  1. Registration on hochschulstart.de [de]: You will receive two numbers, a BID (Bewerbungs-ID = Application ID) and a BAN (Bewerbungs-Authentifizierungs-Nummer = Application Authentication Number).
  2. Registration on the University of Freiburg application portal: Here you will be requested to enter your BID and BAN.
  3. Use the University of Freiburg application portal to apply for admission to the degree program of your choice. To do so, please follow the instructions on the portal. You may apply for admission to up to three University of Freiburg degree programs through the dialog-oriented service procedure.
  4. At the end of the application process, you will be requested to print out your application for admission (pdf). This application form already includes your personal data as well as information on the supporting documents you will need to submit (e.g., your educational certificates).
  5. Send the completed application form along with all required supporting documents to the address provided on the application form by 15 July (deadline). If you are applying for admission to more than one University of Freiburg degree program, please include the required supporting documents with each individual application.
  6. You may view the current processing status of your application on the university’s application portal or on hochschulstart.de at any time. An email will be sent to your personal address when your status changes.
  7. Letters of acceptance and rejection are uploaded to the online portal in August.
