How do I apply for the lottery procedure?

Applicants that are non-EU or EEA citizens and/or do not have a German higher education entrance qualification (Abitur) cannot participate in the lottery.

The lottery takes place for those courses of study that are entrance-restricted and in which not all spaces have been taken for a particular course of study. If, after the last waiting list has been covered, there are still spaces available, they will be given to students via the lottery.

Registering for lottery participation is online and tailored to each desired course of study. Application deadlines for the winter semester is September 1-30 and for the summer semester March 1-31. Applications beyond these deadlines will not be considered.

The online application portal for the lottery is only live during the above-mentioned deadlines. Lottery applications are only accepted online.
