Enrollment in a degree program

Admission requirements for bachelor's degree courses and the "First Legal Examination" (EJP) course

[learn more]

To enroll in a bachelor's degree, you usually need a certificate of general university entrance qualification, the relevant subject-specific university entrance qualification or a comparable foreign qualification.

Applicants with a professional qualification can, depending on the type of previous professional training, start the bachelor’s degree directly or gain access to university via a trial degree or an entrance examination.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to enroll with the university entrance qualification certificate.

When you study "First Legal Examination" (EJP), you will be enrolled in the Bachelor's degree in Law. If you already have a Bachelor of Laws degree from the FernUniversität or a comparable university degree with 210 ECTS points, you do not have to enroll in the Bachelor's degree at the same time.

Admission requirements for master’s courses

To enroll in a master’s course, you need a certificate of a university degree with a standard period of at least six semesters or a comparable foreign university degree.
