What does it mean if a degree course has "local admissions restrictions"?

This means that this degree course can only accomodate a given number of students per semester. This is known as its capacity. The capacity is laid down in the "Zulassungszahlensatzung". This document can be accessed here (in German).

If there are more applicants than the capacity allows, the applicants are admitted according to certain selection criteria (in most cases that's their final grade or the number of their waiting semesters).

The lowest grade that still makes it is called the "Numerus Clausus" (NC).

All Bachelor degree courses with local admissions restrictions at the HNU use the "dialogue-oriented service procedure" via That means that applicants first have to register at, before they can proceed with their application at the HNU.

The admission procedures for the degree programmes Business Information Systems and Information Management in Healthcare are carried out by the Ulm University of Applied Sciences in accordance with the provisions of the German federal state of Baden-Württemberg. The application for admission is to be sent to the Ulm University of Applied Sciences which will also provide information about the procedure.

What does it mean if a degree course has "free admission"?

Every application that

  1. meets the entry requirements and
  2. arrives within the time-limit and in the prescribed manner gets admitted.

You can look up the entry requirements here (for Bachelor degree courses) and here (for Master's degree courses).

"in the prescribed manner" means, that the application has to use the proper channels and forms (e.g. it can't be submitted by email) and meet the entry requirements for studying the desired course at the HNU.

"within the time-limit" means, that all documents have to arrive at the HNU before the application deadline ends.

Please note: The notifocation of approval you'll receive after a successfull application does not yet mean that you study at the HNU. To become a HNU student, you have to take the next step and enroll within the enrollment period.
