It's great that you have decided to study at RWTH Aachen. Nothing stands between you and your application if you fulfill the admission requirements!

Who has to apply and who can directly enroll?

If you are interested in a course of study with restricted admission, you must first apply.

Please refer to our current RWTH-Info or our courses of study to find out which courses of study have open admission or restricted admission.

If your prospective Bachelor's course of study or subject does not have restricted admission, you are guaranteed a university placement! This means that you can enroll before the enrollment deadline.

Admission to a restricted or open admission Master's course of study requires online application. The signed application form and all required documents must have been received by RWTH by the application deadline.

Please note that the application deadlines are final deadlines. This means that your application will not be considered after the deadline has passed.
