Application for a study place

Procedure at HDBW


There is no NC at the HDBW, so you do not have to have a certain grade point average to be admitted to the Bachelor's or Master's programme. Instead, you will go through an application process with us, including a personal interview to compare your career plans and goals with the chosen degree programme.
On this page you can find out how the application process works and which documents you need.

Overview of HDBW's application process

Immatrikulation - Studienausweis der HDBW
  1. Application:
    Use our online application process, where you can upload the required documents in digital form.
  2. Personal dialogue:
    We live the network idea. That's why we invite all our applicants to a personal motivational interview before they start their studies. For international applicants, this can take place virtually via Zoom, MSTeams or Skype.
  3. Decision on admission:
    After this motivational interview and when all the documents have been submitted, the HDBW will decide whether to admit you to the programme.
  4. Enrolment in the study programme:
    As soon as you have been accepted, our study contract will be sent to you.
    Once you have signed and send it back, the enrolment process starts, in which some more documents are needed.
    Once completed, you will obtain your HDBW student ID and there is nothing standing in the way of you starting your studies here.
