Allocation of Study Places through


The central place allocation procedure of the Foundation for University Admissions /

Hochschulstart is a service platform of the Foundation for University Admissions (SfH). It is responsible for carrying out the central allocation procedure for study places with restricted admissions for the 1st semester throughout Germany. At the University of Freiburg, these are currently the subjects:

Human medicine*

* Applications for this subject are only accepted for each winter semester

For more information on the procedure for human medicine, pharmacy and dentistry, please contact


Please note

  • In the selection process for Human Medicine and Dentistry, the results of the Test for Medical Studies (TMS) are taken into account, among other things.
    The Test for Medical Studies (TMS) will play a major role in the "Additional Aptitude Quota" (also in the transitional period 2020/21 and 2021/22 for those who have already applied) and in the "University Selection Procedure" (AdH) quota, which is why we strongly advise you to take part. Further information here and here Humanmedizin und Zahnmedizin
  • The "Study Aptitude Test for Pharmacy Studies (PhaST)" plays a key role in the application procedure for the Pharmacy programme. We therefore advise you to take part. You can register for the test here

Prioritisation of study preferences

If you submit more than one application for the central allocation procedure, e.g. for different study locations, then you must prioritise your study preferences by 22 January for the summer semester and by 22 July for the winter semester at the latest. Why prioritise? The order of your submitted applications reflects your preferences. It is therefore important that you sort the applications in your overview according to your preferences. Hochschulstart calls this process "prioritising". Low-priority applications are eliminated as soon as a higher-priority offer becomes available - so always prioritise your desired course of study at the University of Freiburg highly!
