    Admissions Lottery

    If and when places on restricted admission degree programmes remain or become available after the admission procedure has been completed, these will be allocated by the University by lottery. All applicants are eligible to participate in the admissions lottery including those who were already offered a place on another degree programme or at another university.

    If you want to participate in the admissions lottery, please submit a short application via the University’s application portal. That portal will be live during the relevant application periods. Applications not submitted via our web portal will not be considered. The University will not check whether you are really eligible for admission to the University of Würzburg. Your documents will not be reviewed until you were made an offer of admission and want to enrol at the University. Before you submit your lottery application, please check whether the higher education entrance qualification you hold qualifies you for admission to the University of Würzburg. Holders of an entrance qualification for universities of applied sciences do not(!) qualify for admission to the University of Würzburg.
    Information on required higher education entrance qualification

    If you obtained your higher education entrance qualification in a country other than Germany and were admitted to university through lottery, you will be required to provide proof of your proficiency in the German language when you enrol. If you do not do so, you will not be enrolled. Due to the late date at which the admissions lottery will take place, you will not be able to sit the Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang test (German language test for university admission, DSH).
    Information for holders of certificates issued by non-German institutions

    If there are places remaining after the admission procedure has been completed, the remaining places for the first subject semester will be allocated by lottery. Admissions lottery will usually start in mid‑April or, respectively, mid‑October at the earliest. Lottery will end as soon as all places on the respective programmes have been allocated but no later than 4 weeks after the lecture period has started. We are not able to provide information on exact start and end dates or the progress of the lottery.
