Apply for university admission for locally restricted study places


The number of prospective students in Germany exceeds the number of people available

Study places. Through central coordination in the dialogue-oriented service procedure (DoSV), Hochschulstart ensures that each applicant receives only one study place and that all available study places are allocated.

Hochschulstart advises you comprehensively on questions regarding the allocation of study places.

Hochschulstart carries out the DoSV on behalf of the universities. If a university participates in the procedure, you must register at Hochschulstart, submit online applications via the portal and put them in a desired order. The applications will be forwarded to the universities, you may have to submit further documents to the universities. The universities rank the applicants on ranking lists. Depending on which place you are on the leaderboard, you will receive an offer of admission that you can accept. If you do not yet want to accept the offer, you can wait and see if you will also receive an offer for your other applications.

Subordinated tenders are automatically excluded from the procedure. At the end of the procedure, you will receive

for the best possible offer until then, a study place.
