Admission with Advanced Standing
Applicants who were previously enrolled in the same or a similar program in Germany or abroad may be granted advanced standing.
Applicants who have already passed exams in comparable courses at their previous university can have their academic achievements recognized and may be granted advanced standing, i.e. they are admitted to an advanced semester.
It will be decided at the time of enrollment in which semester a student will be placed. However, this decision is not final until after credit transfers have been evaluated, which happens after enrollment.
