Bachelor selection

Selection criteria

The ZIB WiSo office ranks the applicants of the current Study Abroad application round based on the overall average grade achieved in their degree. This constitutes the basis for admission or refusal and the allocation to the applicants’ preferred partner university. In the case of identical average grades and preferred universities between two or more applicants, the study speed decides. Where this is also identical, a decision is made by the drawing of lots.

Selection process

Selection for the Study Abroad Programme is based on written applications. There are no selection interviews.

The results of the selection process are normally communicated within ten weeks of the application deadline via email to the applicants’ student account.

Master's selection

Results of the selection process are normally communicated ten weeks after the application deadline via email to the applicants’ student account.
