First semester

We generally distinguish between

  • Degree courses without admission restrictions ('open degree courses')
  • Degree courses with admission restrictions ('NC-degree courses')
  • Dual degree courses

The studies are generally started in the first semester of a degree course. There are different paths for applicants with German credentials in open and admission-restricted degree courses.

Applicants with foreign credentials have to follow the same application process. The application must be submitted in any case via uni-assist in Berlin in time.

Further information and contacts can be found on the pages of the  International Office.

NC-restricted degree courses

Admission-restricted degree courses

The distinct aspect of degree courses with restricted admission (so-called NC-restricted degree courses) is that only a limited number of study places are available. There are basically more prospective students interested in studying this program than actual study places. Therefore, prospective students must apply for these study places in a certain way and within a certain time frame.

You can apply for the degree courses listed below with help of our online application form. Once the application is filled out completely, you can print it off and sign it.

The signed application must be submitted at the latest by July 15, 2019 for the winter semester 2019/2020. If there are certain admission prerequisites mandatory  Proof of internship or language proficiency, these must only be presented once you enrol in the respective degree course. Applications received after the deadline are excluded from the proceedings.

A timely submission of the application is not sufficient, if you submit a special application (hardship, compensation for disadvantages) or if you apply for the degree course Social Work :transnational. All documents listed under prerequisite conditions must be submitted along with your application.

Applicants applying under the pilot project to be accepted to an institution of higher education with a school leaving certificate and apprenticeship in Hesse, must also submit additional documents. (Further information can be found on the page Studying without higher education entrance qualification. This information is available in German only.)

Once the main procedure to fill the NC study places is completed, possibly free, not occupied study places are given to not admitted candidates during succession procedures. The selection in the succession procedure takes place without an additional application in accordance with the same criteria like in the main proceeding. You automatically take part in the succession procedure, if you were not accepted in the main procedure.

NC-Bachelor degree courses in the field Social Work as well as Business and Law

The Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences takes part in the dialogue-oriented service proceedings (Dialogorientierten Serviceverfahren (DOSV) of the foundation 'Stiftung der Hochschulzulassung - hochschulstart.de' in the summer semester 2020 with the following Bachelor degree courses:

  • Business Administration (B.A.)
  • International Business Administration (B.A.)
  • International Finance (B. Sc.)
  • Social Work (B.A.)
  • Social Work: transnational (B.A.)
  • Commercial Law (LL.B.)

The dialogue-oriented service proceeding (Dialogorientiertes Serviceverfahren (DOSV) is a central proceeding that federally coordinates locally admission restricted degree courses and ensures that no study place remains empty.

Once the applicants have successfully registered on the application portal hochschulstart.de, they can view the current status of their application via the DOSV, as well as other admission offers in their user account.

Please register on the application portal hochschulstart.de, if you would like to apply for the first semester of one of these Bachelor degree courses. Your completely filled out and signed form must be submitted to the Admissions Office of the Frankfurt UAS at the latest by January 15, 2020.

  • 80% of the remaining study places are awarded in consideration of the grade point average (higher education entrance qualification) and 20% in consideration of the waiting period.

More information can be found in the respective legal sources.

Dual degree courses

Dual degree courses are characterized by higher education linked with training at a company. Practical phases at a company and study phases at the Frankfurt UAS take place alternately in accordance with a determined schedule.

High school graduates must apply at cooperating companies and present a training or study contract prior to enrolling into the degree course. The application rounds at cooperating companies usually start one year ahead of time, which means that an application at the stated companies must be submitted one year ahead of the study begin. These degree courses are therefore only open to those who have a respective training or study contract (see table below) along with the other requirements and can present it at the time of enrollment.
