hochschulSTART Allocation Process


Nationwide Selection Process via Hochschulstart

The study placements in the medicine and dentistry courses of study ending with a Staatsexamen degree are allocated by Hochschulstart in a nationwide selection process. Please submit your application to Hochschulstart before the deadline.

First, some placements are made in the advance quota process for special applicant groups. Then the main placement process takes place. 30 percent of the available placements are allocated to applicants with the best Abitur grades/GPAs, further 10 percent are allocated via the aptitude quota process.

RWTH Aachen can allocate the remaining 60 percent of study placements using its own criteria in an independent selection process.

For information on the admission process at RWTH, please refer to the websites of the Faculty of Medicine and of the Dentistry course of study.
