Admission examination

Regular date: 13–17 June 2022
Alternative date: 28 June 2022

Invitations to the admission exam are only sent electronically through the university’s electronic information system and no later than 30 days before the exam date. If the faculty sends an invitation for an alternative exam date, this period may be shortened accordingly.

Admission exams on an alternative date may only be permitted by the dean for applicants who request an alternative date at least three days before the regular examination date. Only serious reasons, primarily health-related, are considered for an alternative date. Other reasons include study abroad constituting preparation for university study – i.e. graduate or study examinations held from 13 to 19 June 2022. The request must be explained in detail and the circumstances in the request must be documented. Other alternative dates are not permitted. The application is submitted and handled through the university’s electronic information system.

An applicant may request modification of the admission exam due to a medical handicap, including specific learning disorders. The request must state the specific modification requirements for the admission exam and must be documented with a medical report or statement from a relevant specialist facility. The dean decides on the request. If the request is deemed unsubstantiated, the dean may request additional or more detailed documentation. Such request is submitted and handled through the university’s electronic information system and must be submitted by 31 March 2022.

Any such claim is not taken into account if made retroactively, e.g. during an appeals process.
