Application & Admissions

Prospective Students stripe


The LAS Program has an annual intake of about 80 students. Selection is based on your academic achievements and motivation for studying LAS with us in Freiburg.

  • 2023 application period: June 1 – July 15
  • 2023 application essay question: "In your opinion, which aspects of today's societies (nationally or

    internationally) are definitely worth preserving for the future?"

LAS Application Guidelines

These guidelines refer to the 2022 application process and are being updated step by step for 2023.

Your application process and guideline depends on your citizenship and your University entrance qualification:

  • EU Guideline for citizens from EU and EEA member states (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway), and for international applicants with a German Abitur
  • Non-EU Guideline for non-EU and non-EEA citizens without a German Abitur

If you have dual citizenship, you must apply with the citizenship "closest" to Germany:

  • German and any other citizenship → as a German, i.e. following the EU Guideline
  • EU or EAA and a non-EU/-EAA citizenship → as an EU or EAA citizen, i.e. following the EU Guideline
  • Two non-EU/-EAA citizenships → either and following the Non-EU Guideline
