Admissions Process

Step by step –
From admission to graduation

Students interested in joining a Bachelor’s program at Hochschule Fresenius must be able to prove that they fulfil the following admission requirements:

To study at Hochschule Fresenius in Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt am Main, Hamburg, Idstein, Cologne, Munich, or Wiesbaden, the subject-linked university entrance qualification or advanced technical certificate must entitle the applicant to study in the state of Hessen. To be admitted to a Bachelor’s program at Hochschule Fresenius in Heidelberg, the subject-linked university entrance qualification or advanced technical certificate must entitle the applicant to study in the state of Baden-Württemberg. If you are unsure as to whether your subject-linked university entrance qualification or advanced technical certificate entitles you to study at a university of applied sciences in Hessen or Baden-Württemberg, please
provide us with a certified copy of your certificate so that we can check it.

In addition, each semester group is subject to internal limitations on numbers: A maximum of 25 students are admitted to each Bachelor’s study group on the International Business Management (B.A.) study program. We do not require specific average grades (numerus clausus) or particular advanced courses (Leistungskurse) for our Bachelor’s programs.

Anyone wishing to apply to a program at Hochschule Fresenius must follow a specific admissions procedure. During this procedure, applicants will be selected based on their motivation and personal suitability.

We believe it is important to support ambitious young people throughout their studies and to prepare them to start their careers. In order to do this, we use the application process to select applicants based on their specific skills and interests. The procedure is therefore divided into six stages:

You can use the application forms to submit a non-binding application. Applications can be submitted all year round. After that you will receive an email with your individual login details.

Submitting your Application Documents
You will find an upload section on the online application portal with the documents required for enrollment. The only thing needed by post is a certified copy of your university entrance qualification. The only other thing we need to decide whether to admit you to the study program is your guided statement of motivation (see step 3). All other documents required for enrollment can be submitted after the application procedure.

Application Procedure
When applying to Hochschule Fresenius, you need to submit a guided statement of motivation. The individual steps are described in more detail below.
  • You will find the template for the guided statement of motivation in our upload section once you have successfully completed your online application (see step 1). Please download the template.
  • Fill out the guided statement of motivation according to the guidelines.
  • Upload your completed statement of motivation to our upload section so that our admissions committee can begin their assessment.

Feedback Interview
The admissions committee will check and assess your guided statement of motivation as soon as it is received. They will then hold an individual feedback interview (face-to-face/by telephone) with you to clarify open questions. You will receive your result straight after the interview. In individual cases, the admissions committee reserves the right to convene again after the interview to decide whether to admit you to the study program. You will then be informed of the result.
Admission to Study Program
If you are accepted for the study program, our administration team will send you a study contract. Please sign the forms and return them within 14 days, since we cannot guarantee your university place beyond the 14-day limit.
