Information on how to apply

Have you opted for a Bachelor’s or Master’s programme at SRH Campus Stuttgart? Now all you need to do is apply for a place. Simply upload your documents to our application portal. If you meet the admission requirements, you will be invited to attend a discussion at our university, which will enable us to get to know you better and to talk about your plans for the future. 

You can find out whether your chosen degree programme starts in April or October on the relevant programme details page. There are no application deadlines for our study programmes. You can even apply right up until just before semester starts. Please bear in mind, however, that the visa application process can take up to three months, especially if you are applying from outside the EU. So the earlier you apply, the more time you will have to organise your studies. The same goes for finding accommodation and arranging funding.
