Subject-related admission requirements and selection procedure

Since the winter semester 2012/13, vocational placement is no longer an admission requirement.
However, due to the great importance of prior practical knowledge, we recommend vocational placement or relevant vocational training. For this reason, bonus points for prior practical knowledge will continue to be added to the grade of the university entrance qualification in accordance with its duration and relevance to landscape development.
If the number of applicants exceeds the number of available study places, a selection process is used for admission decisions. The process takes into account the grade of the university entrance qualification as well as any completed vocational training, which is assessed according to its relevance to the study program and the grade as well as internships of more than 6 months duration in foreign countries or the completion of a voluntary ecological year or Federal voluntary service in the area of environment and nature conservation on the basis of a bonus system.
