After the application process: the control sheet

After submitting their online application, all applicants receive a confirmation email with a control sheet and application number. The control sheet states which documents (if any) have to be submitted to the university in order to complete the application. If no documents are requested at this point, all relevant documents will be reviewed when the applicant immatriculates in person.

Information Portal Admission

The information portal admission lets applicants track their application and accept or reject a university place that is offered to them. Admission letters are available for download after the admission process on the information portal is completed. Rejection letters are likewise available for download on the information portal after the application process is completed.
