Application deadlines for WU’s English-taught master’s programs

We are now accepting applications for our English-taught master’s programs starting in the 2019/20 winter semester. At the time of application, students do not need a completed bachelor’s program. To apply, please use our online application tool.

WU uses a rolling admission system, which means that there are three so-called “priority deadlines”:

  • Priority deadline I: October 8, 2018

  • Priority deadline II: January 8, 2019

  • Priority deadline III: March 8, 2019

If you apply by October 8, 2018, we will let you know by Christmas whether you have been accepted by the program of your choice. The earlier you apply, the earlier you will be notified of the status of your application.

Please note that for the International Management/CEMS program, only the first two priority deadlines apply. Last chance to apply: January 8, 2019.

Please check the program-specific application requirements and admission procedures here.

Interested in studying abroad? Apply now for an exchange semester in the 2019/2020 winter semester !

Application period: October 22 – October 31, 2018

Bachelor’s students who would like to spend the 2019/20 winter semester at one of our partner universities overseas can apply until October 31, 2018 (12:00 noon).

The library catalog, your best friend for literature searches

Since mid-September, the library catalog shines in new splendor. The new design is not only mobile-friendly, we also added some useful features.

  • Form: If you are looking for textbooks, case studies or legal codes, the filter Form helps you to refine your search.

  • Available Physical Resources: By applying this filter, the catalog only shows books where there is at least one copy available in the library.

  • Online Resource: Use this filter if you only want to get items that you can access online (e.g. eBooks).

  • Do not forget to sign in: Only by signing in to the catalog, you will see, if and for how long you can borrow a book.


Have a look at our eLearning page to see some examples and get some hints.
