Application for a Higher Course Semester Winter 2020/21
The application period for the 2020/21 winter semester will begin May 4, 2020. Please note: If your Bachelor's degree program is part of the Dialogue-Oriented Service Procedure in the first semester, applications for the higher semester are only possible from July 2, 2020.
Restricted Admission Bachelor's and Master's Course of Study
Some courses of study have restricted admission in their higher semesters, that is starting the second core semester, and require an application. Please refer to our courses of study to determine which courses of study are affected.
The Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia determines the admissions numbers every semester for study placements in higher core semesters at RWTH Aachen. The number of students who re-registered before the deadline is substracted from this number.
If there are still spots available after the re-registration deadline has passed, they are allocated to applicants in corresponding courses of study through a selection process.
Please note: After the application deadline has passed, admissions and rejection letters will be uploaded to Selfservice. This only happens, however, if an allocation process has taken place.
