We are delighted you are interested in the degree programme Computer
Science (CTS). We hope the following information will help you successfully
secure a place at our University of Applied Sciences.
Because of the Corona Virus Crisis and the accompanying consequences on
this year's Abitur exams, the application portal of Hochschulstart is
estimated to open on July 1, 2020.
How to apply in three steps:
- If you have a foreign entrance qualification, you need to apply to the “Studienkolleg Konstanz” for recognition of your certificates. If this recognition is successful, they will give you the certificate we need for your application. This recognition may take some time to be processed, therefore we encourage you to start the process as soon as possible.
You can find the application portal of the “Studienkolleg Konstanz” here.
You can find the required documents here.
For further questions about the recognition process, please contact the “Studienkolleg Konstanz” via email.
- Go to hochschulstart.de. Select “Login to application portal” and register an account. This portal will open in April each year.
- Login and make your application through hochschulstart.de, print it, sign it and send it to Ulm University of Applied Sciences with the required documentation.
The degree programme CTS is only offered in the winter semester.
Applications for the degree programme Computer Science (CTS) at Ulm University of Applied Sciences can be made until July 15. This is a cut-off date. That means applications which are received later or do not contain all the required documents will not be considered, even if missing the deadline was not your fault. The relevant date is the date when your application reaches the University of Applied Sciences. The date of the postmark is irrelevant. Since your application can only be processed if all the documentation is complete and submitted by the deadline, we recommend that you apply early so that any questions arising can be clarified in time before the close of applications.
Recognition of your certificates by the “Studienkolleg Konstanz” can take some weeks, and if one or more documents are missing, it will take even longer. Therefore we advise you to start this paperwork as soon as possible, since you need to have this certificate in order to apply through hochschulstart.de
