Application & Admissions

Prospective Students stripe


The LAS Program has an annual intake of 80 students. It is selective; not all applicants are admitted. Selection is based on academic achievements and motivation for studying LAS in Freiburg.

The application start is expected for July 1. We are currently awaiting the official regulation.

The application deadline is August 20 (based on a regulation passed on May 15 for all study programs in Germany).

We will update our A&A timelines as soon as possible. Please note that further 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). 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

Tuition Fees: The State of Baden-Württemberg charges tuition fees for non-EU students (€1,500 per semester) and for students seeking a second Bachelor or Master's degree (€650 per semester). For more information, including exemptions, please see the Student Service Center.

Student Service Center – The Starting Point for Your LAS Application

The Student Service Center informs and advises on study offerings and applications at the University of Freiburg – including LAS. As of June 1, you can apply for the LAS Program via the Application Portal; the portal language can be changed to English in the bottom right corner (desktop) and in the navigation menu (mobile).
