For the application deadlines, see https://tu-freiberg.de/fakult6/imre/application-procedure. Late submissions may be considered only if there are still free places. For students in need of a visa, it all depends on the speed of the embassies, and those vary immensely.


When does the program start?

The program starts annually in October, the individual lectures begin on the second Monday of October. Please note that arriving late is no option, the first days are so important to get you accustomed, plus the first deadlines (registration for seminars, tutorials, etc.) also expire very early.
