To the Online Application

The RWTHonline application portal for the 2021 summer semester will open on December 1, 2020.

RWTHonline Selfservice will allow you to view the current status of your application. Here, you are also informed about missing documents. If you are applying for a restricted-admission course of study, we recommend checking the status of your application before the deadline for submitting additional documents, March 15 for the summer semester and July 20 for the winter semester, to ensure that no documents are missing and that you can participate in the allocation process.

The International Office will inform you that documents are missing through Selfservice only. It is your responsibility to regularly check your application status.


There are different processes for applying for a university placement in a basic course of study, that is, a course leading to a first university degree, such as a Bachelor's of a Staatsexamen program.

An important difference exists between restricted admission (NC) and open admission subjects. Restricted admission subjects are those courses of study that have an exclusion grade, the so called numerus clausus or NC.

In NC subjects there are less spots available than there applications. For this reason admission is limited to suitable applicants.

In open admission subjects there are sufficient spots for all suitable applicants. A rejection is only given if an application does not fulfill the formal or educational criteria.

Application Process and German Course

On these pages we explain the Application Process for the First Semester of restricted admission and open admission Bachelor courses of study and let you know what you need to note when applying to a higher semester.
