Application & Admissions

Prospective Students stripe


The LAS Program has an intake of 80 students per year. It is selective; not all applicants are admitted. Selection is based on academic achievements and motivation for studying LAS in Freiburg. The application period is June 1 – July 15. The selection interviews (EU application process only) take place from July 27 – 31, 2020. 

Please note that changes are possible depending on further developments and regulations in the context of the Coronavirus pandemic. 

LAS Application Guidelines 2020

These guidelines summarize the LAS Admissions Regulations (Auswahlsatzung) that were passed by the University of Freiburg Senate on March 31, 2020. 

There are two processes – depending on your nationality and where you acquired your University entrance qualification. Please read and follow "your" guideline carefully:

Dual citizens must apply with the citizenship "closest" to Germany:
German and another citizenship → application as a German, i.e. as an EU citizen
EU or EAA and a non-EU/-EAA citizenship → application as an EU or EAA citizen
two non-EU/-EAA citizenships → application with either
