Please note that the list of documents mentioned is not exhaustive. The documents to be submitted depend on your type of university admission as well as other application and admission requirements.
The allocation rules apply to undergraduate Bachelor's degree programmes.
Of the calculated study place capacity, study places are made available in advance for certain study place applications. These advance quotas include, for example, joint students who complete vocational training parallel to their studies, vocationally qualified persons or foreign nationals, insofar as they are not treated equally to Germans.
The remaining places are allocated according to qualification and waiting period.
The following applies to the departmental journalism degree programme: At the beginning of the degree programme, you must complete an internship or several internships in the editorial department of a current mass medium (in particular daily newspaper, radio, TV, online/cross-media, PR/public relations) of at least four weeks in total. The internship can be made up in the first two semesters. However, we recommend that you complete it before beginning your studies.
In the Industrial Engineering degree programme, a basic internship totalling 8 weeks must be completed within the first two years of study. Comparable work completed prior to the degree programme can be recognised upon application. The application can only be submitted after matriculation.
You can find an information sheet on the basic internship in the Industrial Engineering and Management degree programme here (German).
You can also study without a school-based higher education entrance qualification (e.g. Abitur). The Qualifications Ordinance (§§ 29, 30) lists the qualifications you need to take up a course of study (= university entrance):

* Trial studies: You start your studies in October. After one year, your examination results are checked. If your performance is satisfactory, you can continue your studies as normal.
In the open-admission degree programmes, places are available in all higher semesters that are open for applications. For the winter semester, places are therefore generally available in the 3rd, 5th and 7th semesters, and in the 2nd, 4th and 6th semesters for the summer semester.
For all application options for the coming semester, please refer to our online application portal.
You can only apply for a higher semester if you have already studied in another degree programme or at another university and have examination credits (ECTS points) for the desired degree programme.
Admission to a higher semester is only possible in all Bachelor's degree programmes offered at the university if
The number of recognised ECTS must therefore be available in the following amount for the respective semester:
You apply for the 3rd semester. You are recognised for 50 ECTS –> Admission is possible!
The recognition of examination achievements with the associated ECTS is carried out according to the current study and examination regulations of the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences for the corresponding degree programme.
Please submit the following documents by the deadline as part of the online application:
Foreign educational certificates
If you have acquired a foreign higher education entrance qualification (e.g. certificates, diplomas), you must have it recognised. The assessment - Vorprüfungsdokumentation (VPD) - is carried out for us by uni-assist e.V.. The VPD does not replace an application to the university.
If you are interested, you can check for yourself without obligation whether your degree entitles you to study in Germany or Bavaria anabin.kmk.org/anabin.html or www.uni-assist.de/tools/check-hochschulzugang/
Procedure Certificate Examination (VPD) by uni-assist e.V.
The university decides whether your certificate of education entitles you to study the desired degree programme or whether you have to take an assessment test.
Direct university access
Applicants whose educational certificates allow direct access to higher education must prove that they have passed a German language examination in order to be admitted.
Only the following German examinations are recognised:
Proof of having passed the German language examination must be uploaded as part of the application. Please refer to the online application portal for the deadlines.
If applicable, you will have to take the examination to determine the suitability of foreign applicants to study at universities in the Federal Republic of Germany before you start your studies.
Preparation for the assessment test is carried out on
Studienkolleg bei den Fachhochschulen des Freistaates Bayern
We will let you know whether you need to attend the Studienkolleg after we have checked your application documents.
After passing the assessment test, enrolment at a Bavarian university of applied sciences is possible. However, it depends on the result of the selection procedure.
Applicants from the People's Republic of China and Vietnam need an APS certificate. It must be submitted to the university during the application procedure.
Important: Enrolment is not possible without notification of the insurance status of your health insurance company. The notification of the health insurance company is done digitally.

Applicants who come from a member state of the EU/EEA must also register with their health insurance company and inform them there. Foreign applicants from non-EU member states must register with a German health insurance fund, take out insurance there and inform the health insurance fund that they wish to study at Ansbach University of Applied Sciences.
The above-mentioned notification must also be made if you have been de-registered from Ansbach University of Applied Sciences and re-register for the next semester, e.g. in a different course of study.
You can find the information sheet on health insurance here (german).
