Registration period starts for WU bachelor’s programs

The on­line re­gis­tra­tion period for WU bach­elor’s pro­grams starts on March 1, and for the first time, WU is in­vit­ing ap­plic­a­tions for two bach­elor’s pro­grams: the Bach­elor’s Pro­gram in Busi­ness, Eco­nom­ics and So­cial Sciences, and the Bach­elor’s Pro­gram in Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics, WU’s new Eng­lish-taught bach­elor’s pro­gram slated for launch in the 2018/19 win­ter semester. The re­gis­tra­tion period is identical for the two pro­grams.

120 stu­dent places will be avail­able for the new Eng­lish-taught Bach­elor’s Pro­gram in Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics (BBE) in the next win­ter semester, and 3,554 for the Ger­man-taught Bach­elor’s Pro­gram in Busi­ness, Eco­nom­ics and So­cial Sciences. As a first step, pro­spect­ive stu­dents in­ter­ested in one of the two pro­grams have to re­gister on­line dur­ing the period from March 1 through May 15 and pay a re­gis­tra­tion fee of € 50. On May 17, ap­plic­ants will be no­ti­fied of whether the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure for the pro­gram of their choice will be con­tin­ued or not. If the num­ber of ap­plic­a­tions re­ceived for one or both of the pro­grams ex­ceeds the num­ber of avail­able places, ap­plic­ants will have to sub­mit a let­ter of mo­tiv­a­tion by June 1 (in Ger­man for the Bach­elor’s Pro­gram in Busi­ness, Eco­nom­ics and So­cial Sciences and in Eng­lish for the BBE pro­gram). In this case, ap­plic­ants in­ter­ested in the Eng­lish-taught BBE pro­gram will also be re­quired to up­load ad­di­tional doc­u­ments to prove their Eng­lish skills. Sub­sequently, it will be es­tab­lished whether it will be ne­ces­sary to hold en­trance exams on June 10. If there are fewer ap­plic­ants than avail­able places for one or both of the pro­grams as of May 15, ad­mis­sion to the pro­gram in ques­tion will be possible without any fur­ther se­lec­tion pro­ced­ures. In any case, all ap­plic­ants will re­ceive Wel­come Pack­ages with study ma­ter­i­als and vouch­ers worth the cash equi­val­ent of the re­gis­tra­tion fee.

En­trance exams once a year, no school leav­ing cer­ti­fic­ate re­quired for pre-re­gis­tra­tion

If ap­plic­able, the en­trance exams for the Bach­elor’s Pro­gram in Busi­ness, Eco­nom­ics and So­cial Sciences and the Bach­elor’s Pro­gram in Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics are held only once per year. This means that all pro­spect­ive stu­dents in­ter­ested in start­ing the Bach­elor’s Pro­gram in Busi­ness, Eco­nom­ics and So­cial Sciences either in the 2018/19 win­ter semester or the 2019 sum­mer semester have to re­gister in the period from March 1 to May 15, 2018. This also ap­plies to pro­spect­ive stu­dents who still have to com­plete their com­puls­ory mil­it­ary ser­vice or al­tern­at­ive ci­vil­ian ser­vice and in­tend to start their bach­elor’s pro­gram in the 2019 sum­mer semester. For ap­plic­ants in­ter­ested in the BBE pro­gram, it will only be possible to start the pro­gram in the 2018/19 win­ter semester. Late ap­plic­a­tions can­not be ac­cep­ted, and it will not be possible to take the exam at a later date. On­line re­gis­tra­tion is re­quired for all ap­plic­ants in­ter­ested in the Bach­elor’s Pro­gram in Busi­ness, Eco­nom­ics and So­cial Sciences and the Bach­elor’s Pro­gram in Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics. This also ap­plies to sec­ond­ary school stu­dents in their fi­nal year (no school leav­ing cer­ti­fic­ate is re­quired for on­line pre-re­gis­tra­tion).

In­form­a­tion on the top­ics covered in the exam will be provided on the WU web­site. The ex­act times of the exams will also be an­nounced in due time. If ap­plic­able, the two exams will be held at dif­fer­ent times.
