Apply for a place to study medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, pharmacy


The number of prospective students in Germany exceeds the number of available study places. Through central coordination, Hochschulstart ensures that each applicant receives only one study place and that all available study places are allocated.

The following degree programmes have nationwide admission restrictions:

  • Medicine
  • Veterinary medicine
  • Dentistry
  • Pharmacy

If you are interested in one of these degree programs, you must apply at Hochschulstart. You cannot apply directly to the university.

Hochschulstart checks on the basis of the submitted documents whether you can get a study place and advises you comprehensively on questions regarding the allocation of study places.

In the application portal, you must arrange your applications in a desired order. Applications will be forwarded to the universities. You may need to submit further documents to the universities. Hochschulstart or the universities rank the applicants. Depending on where you are on the ranking, you will receive an offer of admission that you can accept. If you do not want to accept the offer yet, you can wait and see whether you will receive an offer for your other applications.

Subordinated offers are automatically excluded from the procedure.

At the end of the procedure, you will receive a study place for the best possible offer.
