I would like to apply to a higher semester, how can I do it?
During the application period, it is possible to apply to a higher semester, not just to the 1st semester.
For this, you will have to previously obtain a permission from the Admissions Committee. This permission takes some time and should be obtained as early as possible and ideally before the application period starts.
For the document to be issued by the Admissions Committe, you need to write an application identifying yourself, specifying exactly the semester in which you are asking to be placed, the reason why you should be placed in the mentioned semester and attaching the documents supporting your request.
These documents would be your high school certificate and your university transcripts, for example. The application and the documents need to be sent by post and need to be translated to English or German and duly notarized.
These documents will then be analyzed to see if the application requirements are fulfilled and to see if the university subjects that you have already completed are equivalent to courses offered here and in an enough amount that can justify placement in a higher semester. This is only possible if there are free places in the semester you are applying to.
If your request will be decided favorably, you will be issued a letter that you can attach to the application. If not, then you can still apply but this time to start in the 1st semester.

I have an English certificate which was obtained more than 2 years ago, may it still be used to apply?
In this case we advise you to do another language exam as soon as possible.
I am a citizen of an English speaking country. Do I still need to send an English language certificate with my application?
Being a citizen of an English speaking country or having been born in such a country is not enough to attest that you have reached the level of English required to be accepted to the B.A. EUCS. Additionally, you will need to prove that you attended and completed high-school with classes taught and exams completed in English.
I have not attended secondary school in Germany. Is my school certificate sufficient for me to apply to a bachelor program in Germany?
In order to be accepted to a bachelor program in Germany students need to have a certificate which is equivalent to the German "Abitur". Not every secondary school certificate is equivalent to the "Abitur". More detailed information can be found on the DAAD website) or directly in the official anabin website ( ). If you are a foreign student applying to a German university, you are advised to send your application as early as possible after the application period has started, so that you can get your answer in time, in case the documents need to be sent to the licensing office in Bonn for appreciation.
After I apply, how long do I need to wait until I receive the answer informing me whether I was admitted or not?
The admission answers to all applications to the B.A. EUCS only start being sent once the application deadline is over. After that date, you should receive an answer in a time frame of around 2 weeks. The answer might take a bit longer in case we received an extremely large number of applications.

I would like to defer my admission the Summer semester. What do I need to do?
Unfortunately, this action is not possible. The B.A. European Cultures and Society accepts students only in the Winter semester.
What happens if I cannot obtain all the documents necessary for the matriculation before the end of the deadline?
We understand that there are some documents, which are no easily obtained from abroad. We advise you to try to manage as much as possible before the deadline. If that is not possible, because you are still waiting for your visa, for example, you should send as many of the necessary documents as possible and pay the registration fees. Along with the documents you do manage to obtain, please attach a letter enumerating the documents which are still missing with a short explanation of why and when you will be able to obtain them.
I received the acceptance letter / email but I don´t think I can obtain my visa in time. Could the university get in contact with the embassy to speed up my process?
It is up to the student to make sure they have all the necessary documents which allow them to study abroad. The university cannot interfere in this field.
Our advice is to schedule a meeting at the embassy even before you receive the acceptance letter. Some embassies have a long waiting period before they can schedule a meeting. In case you receive the acceptance letter, you have already saved some precious time. In case you are not accepted, you can cancel your meeting before it takes place.
When I clicked “finish” on the online application form, I received the information "your time is over". Do I need to resubmit the information?
