Deadlines, periods and dates

When applying for or enrolling in a degree program at TU Berlin, you need to observe the relevant deadlines: there are set time periods for applying or enrolling in a program. It is important that you find out in good time when they are, gather together all requisite documents, and submit these as specified within the the application and enrollment periods. You must ensure that you keep to all deadlines, as all applications and documents not submitted on time will be disregarded (limitation periods).

Please note: When documents are to be submitted by mail, the deadline refers to the date the documents are received at TU Berlin and not the post date stamp or the date of sending.

Please also note: The following deadlines and dates are published subject to amendment. It is therefore important that you regularly check details for any changes. Please also see the website Current information to learn about possible short-term changes of application periods and deadlines.
