Below you will find important information on how to apply for a degree program in an advanced semester.
Please take your time and read the following information carefully, as many fundamental aspects are explained which are important for your application!
There are different ways to apply for an advanced semester at TU Dortmund University. Which application method is the right one for you personally depends on your choice of study, your nationality and your educational certificates.
Please note: Applicants who have acquired their university entrance qualification (HZB) and their academic achievements in Germany must contact the Student Registration Office to apply and enroll for an advanced semester.
“Advanced semesters" are all semesters of a degree program or subject greater than 1, so if you have already studied at TU Dortmund University or another university and have previously earned credits, you can apply for the recognition of the credits and, on this basis, for placement in an advanced semester.
For many degree programs, the so-called "Studiengangjahresregelung" applies: This means that the start of studies is always in the winter semester. Consequently, within the standard period of study, students can only be placed in odd semesters in the winter semester and in even semesters in the summer semester.
There are degree programs and subjects at TU Dortmund University which are subject to admission restrictions in an advanced semester. You can find out whether there is an admission restriction for a degree program or a subject in our overview of the degree programs on offer. If you have any questions regarding the range of degree programs on offer, please feel free to use TU Dortmund University's advisory services.
