Your application to the HSWT

We will accompany you from the collection of application documents to the online application to the enrolment certificate.

The procedure for applying to study at the HSWT

Deadlines & dates for the study application

Step 1


For all applications, it is imperative that all first, middle and last names are given completely and correctly!

Application for a Bachelor's degree programme without admission restriction

In general, in addition to your ID card and CV, you will need these documents for admission to a Bachelor's programme at the HSWT, which you must submit online with your application:

Application documents & requirements for admission-restricted degree programmes

These degree programmes at the Weihenstephan Campus and at the Triesdorf Campus are subject to a separate admission procedure:

  • Engineering in Forestry
  • Arboriculture and Urban Forest Management

Application for dual study opportunities

In the dual study forms of our Bachelor's degree programmes, you can opt for the work-study programme in the form of combined studies on the one hand, or complete a course with intensive practical work on the other. Special admission requirements and deadlines apply here:

Application for a Master's programme

Your application for the Master's programme takes place via the online application portal, where you must submit all documents such as your ID card and CV. You will need these documents if you have decided to study for a Master's degree at the HSWT:

  • Proof of Bachelor's degree, incl. average grade and final EC score.
  • If you are applying for a second degree: letter of motivation of no more than one page in length
  • For international applicants: Proof of language proficiency and VPD
  • Animal Health Management: Veterinary licensing certificate instead of Bachelor's degree certificate. A certified copy can be submitted later.
  • Climate Change Management: Letter of motivation in English

Application for guest studies at the HSWT

Do you have questions about the application? Ask them to our subject advisory service for Weihenstephan & Triesdorf

Step 2

Apply online on the HSWT application portal

If you meet the requirements for your degree programme, you can use the HSWT application portal to upload your application documents online. At this stage, it is not necessary to send your application documents by post - neither for Bachelor's nor Master's degree programmes.

Step 3

What happens after the online application?

After you have submitted your online application, we need to ask you for a little patience. This is what happens next on your way to the HSWT.
