Applying for the Correct Semester

Information for applicants applying for admission to an advanced semester of a bachelor’s program.

The examination committee reviews the applications for admission to an advanced semester. They assess the courses that you completed in your previous degree program and the length of time you have already spent at university. They then determine the semester in which you can join the specified program in Mannheim.

Students transferring from another higher education institution in Germany

If you have already been enrolled in the same degree program, or a degree program with the same name, at another university in Germany, and are transferring to the University of Mannheim, the periods of study that you have completed are usually recognized in full. In this case, please apply for the semester which follows the one you last completed. You cannot apply for admission to the first semester of the program.

Students changing their degree program

If you have obtained credits in a different degree program or from a degree program outside of Germany and would like to be admitted to an advanced semester in Mannheim on this basis, please submit an application for admission to the second semester. Please also apply for the first semester in case you may not start in the second semester.

If you are changing your degree program and are applying for a study place in the third semester of the new program or later, you must upload proof that you have sought advice
