The admissions for the academic year 2023/2024 are now officially open!

Please note that for logistic reasons, the deadlines for the applications differ depending on your country of origin. Read on to find out what deadlines apply to you.

1. Applicants from slow-visa countries (Group 1)

Getting a visa from countries that do not have a fast visa-access program to Germany can easily take up to several months. Based on our experience, unless we can process your application way before the formal deadline (15 July 2023), it is very likely that you will not make it to Germany by the time the winter semester starts.

In the next section you can find a list out countries that have fast access to German visa. If your country of origin is not in the list below, you belong in the slow-visa group. The deadline for applications for this group is April 30, 2023.

2. Applicants from fast-visa countries (Group 2)

Applicants from countries that can get a quick visa have time to apply until July 15, 2023. These countries include:

  • countries of the EU/EEA
  • Albania
  • Andorra
  • Australia
  • Bosnia & Herzegovina
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • China
  • El Salvador
