Allocation Restricted Admission Master
The Process Step by Step
You must first apply online using the application form. Please make note of the application deadline. The signed application and all required documents must be submitted to the Registrar's Office by the application deadline. These are final deadlines, meaning your application will not be considered after this deadline. Submitting missing documents is possible until the deadline has passed to hand documents in later. This deadline is February 15 for the summer semester and August 15 for the winter semester.
In the next step, the Registrar's Office checks to see if the so-called formal prerequisites are fulfilled. This includes checking to see if the degrees are recognized university degrees and whether other admission requirements such as German or foreign language skills are fulfilled. If the formal requirements are not fulfilled, you will receive a rejection letter from the Registrar's Office after the application has passed. Otherwise your application is sent to the respective faculty to be reviewed for the necessary educational background.
Using the status tool you can view the current status of your application. You are also informed about missing documents there. We recommend checking the status of your application before the application deadline and before the deadline for submitting additional documents to ensure that no documents are missing and that you can participate in the allocation process.
Review of the disciplinary requirements, that is review of admission, admission with provision, or rejection, is the sole responsibility of the examination boards in the faculties.
The faculties notify the Registrar's Office as soon as possible about the results of the review of disciplinary suitability and issue a preliminary or final process grade using the submitted documents. The calculation of the preliminary grade follows the current version of Section 8 Paragraph 4 of the By-Law for Selection Process of Locally Restricted Admission Courses of Study from May 3, 2009. If a final grade is available from the Bachelor course of study, this is taken into consideration for the selection decision.
Peculiarities for the Selection Process in the Business and Economics Master's Course of Study
The School of Business and Economics has decided that in addition to the preliminary Bachelor's grade, the result of a subject-specific study aptitude test, the so called TM-WISO, will be counted for 51 percent in the selection process.
We highly recommend taking the TM-WISO test. Applicants who do not take the test will have zero points assigned to the test result during the selection process.
Please note that there a limited number of dates available to take the test. Find out about dates, deadlines, and locations, where the test will be offered, as early as possible at www.tm-wiso.de. Only 70 people are admitted to take the test at a time.
Peculiarities for the Selection Process in the Molecular and Applied Biotechnology Master's Course of Study
The Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Natural Sciences has decided that in order for an applicant to be allocated a Master's placement for the molecular and applied biotechnology course of study at RWTH Aachen, they must fulfill the educational background prerequisites stated in the examination ordination and that it will conduct a selection process, in which the final Bachelor's grade is weighted 51 percent and the result of a subject-specific study aptitude test (e-test) is weighted with 49 percent.
We highly recommend taking the e-test. If you don't, you will enter the allocation process with zero points listed as your test result.
Please note that there are limited number of dates on which the e-test will be offered. Information about deadlines, dates, and locations will be available on this page no later than June 1.
Admission and rejection letters are sent as soon as the faculties have provided feedback. Notification for the summer semester is typically sent at the beginning of March and the beginning of September for the winter semester. The admission letters for restricted admission courses of study containt the enrollment deadline. You must enroll before the enrollment deadline with all the required documents, including proof of completion of Bachelor course of study no later than the semester before.
