You did not receive any reply to your e-mails?

After a cyber attack at the beginning of May, all the RUB servers were shut down as a precautionary measure, which is why it was not possible to receive/read and send any mails for a long period of time.

Unfortunately not all mails sent to the mailbox during this period could be restored.

If you have not yet received a reply to an e-mail request between the beginning of May and 21.06.2020, please send another e-mail with your request.

Online-Portal Bewerbung: Studentin am PC
Bewerben Sie sich ganz einfach über das Online-Portal der RUB.


At Ruhr-Universität, all German nationals interested in studying a degree course that is subject to restrictions must submit an application via the online portal. International applicants must use the online portal for degree courses that are subject to restrictions as well as for degree courses that are not subject to restrictions.

The application portal is available in the languages German and English.

When do I apply?

Due to the effects of the corona pandemic, special regulations apply for the winter semester 2020/21; the application deadline has therefore been extended to 20 August, 2020.

The date on which the application is submitted is irrelevant for the selection and admission process.


  • Applicants with vocational degrees: the application deadline is April 1st for the winter semester and October 1st for the summer semester, and the application has to be submitted in writing.
    Additional information
  • Applicants for a higher semester have to apply by March 15th for the summer semester and by September 15th for the winter semester. Here, too, the application must be submitted in writing.
    Additional information

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.
