Special applications

A special application for preferred admission can be submitted in addition to the standard application for admission in the online application procedure. Applicants who meet special criteria may qualify for preferred admission but not all cases can be deemed "special." Below, we have listed a few criteria for special applications.

 

Applicants can provide an application for a preferntial admission if you have attended a offical duty or development aid volunteer (of at least two years) or have to take care of a child under 18 years or have to care for a high-maintenance relative up to a period of three years. More information you will find in the general admission regulation under § 8.

 

Your special application is complete, if you submit the following documents within the application period.

1. the signed hardcopy of the special application and the online application

2. a proof of your service period (certified copy)

3. former admission letter or notice for on-hold placement

 

Please note that an incomplete special application results in a rejection of the special application.

 

 

In accordance with the general admission regulation, there is a five percent quota for applicants for whom rejection would constitute an extraordinary hardship. A "hardship application" for applicants with serious health or personal problems may result in immediate admission. More information you will find in the hardship regulation of the HafenCity University.

 

Your special application is complete, if you submit the following documents within the application period.

2. a formal motivation where you explain your reasons in detail. Please note without the motivation we can not consider your special application.

Please note that an incomplete special application results in a rejection of the special application.

In accordance with the Higher Education Act, two percent of available places are allocated to top athletes (athletes who are members of the Olympiastützpunkt Hamburg/Schleswig-Holstein in the A, B, C or D/C squad of the German Olympic Sports Confederation and who for this reason are bound to Hamburg).

 

Your special application is complete, if you submit the following documents within the application period.

1. the signed hardcopy of the special application and the online application

2. a proof that you are member of the Olympiatüzpunkt (OSP) (a certified copy)
