If you have selected one or more study programs at TH Köln you want to apply for, we strongly recommend informing yourself about the right way of applying. The correct way for you to apply is determined by your citizenship, your desired program and your previous academic qualifications.


In order to find the right way of applying, please look at the information given in the tables below.


Applying for a Bachelor's program

If you are unsure whether or not your desired program has got a restricted admission, please go to Programs to find out. You can filter by "with numerus clausus" (restricted admission) and "without numerus clausus" (without restricted admission) under "Type of admission procedure".
