Central allocation of study places via hochschulstart.de (DoSV)
The University of Applied Sciences Potsdam participates in the Dialogue-Oriented Service Procedure (DoSV) of the Foundation for Higher Education Admission with some Bachelor's degree programmes with restricted admission. The procedure supports the higher education institutions in their admission processes for the first semester and helps to avoid vacant study places. Bachelor's degree programmes that are not subject to admission or artistic Bachelor's degree programmes and applications for a higher subject semester as well as Master's degree programmes do not participate in the procedure.
1. Register at hochschulstart.de
Register at the website hochschulstart.de. You will receive an applicant identification number (BID) and an applicant authentication number (BAN). If you have already registered with hochschulstart.de, you do not need to register again. You will continue with your existing BID and BAN.
2. Register and apply on MyCampus
When registering on MyCampus, you will be asked for the BID and BAN. After entering and confirming these, the data you have already entered will be transferred to MyCampus by hochschulstart.de. It is therefore not necessary to enter the data again. You will receive your user ID by email after registration. You set your own password. Follow the instructions in the email. The application is created and submitted in MyCampus. At the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, only one application per applicant is permitted. If you need to submit documents by post, please refer to your personal checklist, which is available in MyCampus directly after submitting the application. Please use the pre-written cover letter at the end of the checklist to submit your documents.
3. Prioritising the applications sent out
Rank submitted applications according to their priority on hochschulstart.de. If the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam is your university of choice, place the corresponding application in the top positions in your profile. You can already receive your first offers of admission. Offers of admission, acceptance of offers and notifications are now communicated and sent out completely via the Hochschulstart portal. If you accept a place offer, the procedure is finished for you and your other applications are deleted.
4. Succession procedure
The University of Applied Sciences Potsdam does not participate in the coordinated move-up procedure of hochschulstart.de. Should study places still be available or become available again after the coordination phase, we may offer a local move-up procedure or lottery procedure. Please inform yourself on the homepage of MyCampus.
The DoSV Guide guides you through the dialogue-oriented service procedure.
