We will process your application as quickly as possible.
We receive more than 4,000 applications for enrolment, and, in the interest of fairness, we do not offer preferential treatment. Please bear in mind that all applicants are waiting for their applications to be processed. If we offered a ‘fast track’ service for some applicants, others would have to wait longer, and this would be unfair.
We only give preferential treatment to applications for enrolment in restricted admission degree programmes. This is due to the fact that there are fixed deadlines to be met in admission procedures.
We process all applications for enrolment in the order of receipt (the order is determined solely by the date an application was stamped ‘received’). We do not give preferential treatment to applications that were handed in in person but rather stamp them ‘received’ and place them in the pile of applications.
Please allow about two to three weeks from the date of receipt for us to process your application for enrolment - the exact time needed will vary according to the number of applications we have received. It will usually take longer to process incomplete applications that require us to check back with applicants.
If you have not received a message from the University of Würzburg by four weeks after you submitted your application, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org asking when you can expect to hear back from us. To avoid unnecessary delay in the processing of applications, please do not contact us earlier to enquire about your application for enrolment.
