Central procurement procedure of the foundation for university admission – hochschulstart.de

For the first time, Kiel University of Applied Sciences is participating in the dialogue-oriented service procedure (DoSV) of the 'Foundation for university admission – hochschustart.de' with its bachelor’s degree in Business Administration in the summer semester 2017.

DoSV is a central procedure to dispense study places for beginners. It serves to coordinate the awarding of basic, local admission-limited degree courses at federal level. The background of this procedure is the current "multiple occupancy" of study places from study applicants who have applied to several universities. Its aim is to distribute the places to applicants faster, more effectively and in a more user-friendly manner. With the DoSV, candidates have the advantage of having a central contact point where they can manage and check the state of all their applications in one platform, at any time.

At hochschulstart.de you can register beginning from 1st November for the summer semester and 1st July for the winter semester for a study place at Kiel University of Applied Sciences. The application deadline ends on the 15th January for the summer semester and the 15th July for the winter semester.
