The vast majority of Bachelor's programs at Mittweida University of Applied Sciences are open-admission programs, which means that there is no NC. The only condition for admission-free study programs is the complete and punctual application with a valid degree certificate.

For our restricted-admission programs (e.g. Media Management or Social Work), a selection process takes place in which we also look at other qualifications such as internships or some school grades - so there is no NC in the classic sense. More detailed information on the selection process can be found in the application instructions.

There are two application periods: The application period for the winter semester starts on April 15 and ends regularly on July 15. Missing documents can be submitted for all degree programs until July 21.

The application period for the summer semester always starts on October 15 and ends on January 15. Missing documents can be submitted until January 21.

You always apply in the year in which you would like to begin your studies, or in the application phase before the desired start of your studies. But please note: Almost all of our study programs start in the winter semester. Only the Bachelor's program in Social Work and a few Master's programs start in the summer semester.
