Applicants from Germany and the EU
The degree course is admission restricted. Application for Germans, ‘Bildungsinländer’ (non-German citizens who attended and graduated school in Germany) and EU members is possible online via the homepage of Leibniz University Hannover. The application deadline is the 15th of January and 15th of July of the year in which the study for summer and winter semester is scheduled to begin. Students should apply preferentially for the winter term as there are more places in the degree programme then and it is better to start with the basic module in October. In the summer term only some vacancies are distributed.
