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


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

The following courses of study are restricted nationwide:

  • Medicine
  • Veterinary medicine
  • Dentistry
  • Pharmacy

If you are interested in one of these courses, you must apply to start university. You cannot apply directly to the university.

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

If you are interested in studying medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry or pharmacy, you must apply for university starting.

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

Subordinated offers automatically withdraw from the proceedings.

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