Selection procedure

Step 1:
First, those applicants are admitted who wished to start their studies previously but were unable to do so due to military service or a voluntary social year (previously admitted applicants).

Step 2:
The remaining places available are then allocated as follows:

  • 2% for cases of unusual hardship
  • 4% for applicants for a second degree programme
  • 5% for non-German nationals and stateless citizens who do not have equivalent German national status. Applicants with equivalent status to German nationals include non-German nationals and stateless citizens who have a German higher education entrance qualification and nationals from the other member states of the EU.
  • 3% for applicants with particular qualifications and experience pursuant to Art. 45 of the Bavarian Higher Education Act (BayHSchG) who do not have another higher education entrance qualification
  • 4% for applicants for a degree programme that is designed in such a way that professional education and training can be completed concurrently.

Step 3:
The remaining places still available are allocated as follows:

  • 25% by average grade
  • 10% by waiting time, and
  • 65% by the university of applied sciences selection quota (selection at the Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences by average grade and qualifications and training quota)

If places are allocated by average grade, a special quota is established for applicants who obtained their higher education entrance qualification at an upper secondary vocational school (Fachoberschule - FOS). The proportion of places allocated in the special quota is equivalent to the proportion of applicants with a higher education entrance qualification from an FOS in the total number of German national or equivalent German national applicants in the respective degree programme.
