FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Which criteria are used to award the university places?

There are usually more applications than places available. This means that not all applications for degree programmes will be successful. The places available will be awarded in accordance with the result of the university’s own selection procedure.

We are unable to give details of any admission restrictions (numerus clausus, NC) in advance. The NC states the selection threshold and the waiting time in semesters (periods of 6 months) for the last student in the ranking who is admitted to the degree programme. This means the NC varies depending on the number of applicants, their selection thresholds/waiting times and the number of places available. Since this is different for each application phase, we are unfortunately unable to provide any information about the admission restrictions (NC).

Why do I apply to hochschulstart.de and to the university?

For some of the Bachelor degree programmes at Esslingen, the admission procedure for applications for the first regular semester is via the national application portal Hochschulstart and the “dialog-oriented service procedure - DoSV”, where you can apply for a maximum of 12 university places.

To process your application, the “Application/Admission” team needs all the documents required for the admission procedure at Esslingen. You can upload these online via Esslingen’s HEonline campus management system.

Broad basic knowledge

I have fond memories of the small working groups with direct contact to the teaching staff. The broad basic knowledge I acquired during my studies in mechatronics helps me in my job. I advise every student to take the opportunity to go abroad, no matter whether it’s a theory semester, a practical semester or a dual degree. It is an experience that will shape you.
