Frequently asked questions & answers
All study programs of our faculty have a flexible Numerus Clausus (NC). Therefore, the NC can be different each semester. You can find an overview of all NC values of the past semesters for the bachelor degree programs here and for the master degree programs here.
All bachelor programs can be started in both the winter and summer semesters. The bachelor program in Management and Economics is particularly designed in such a way so that students who begin their studies in the summer semester will not be disadvantaged in their further studies. Please note that for the 2-subject bachelor you have to apply for both subjects separately! Other deadlines and conditions may apply for the second subject. Therefore, please inform yourself about deadlines and conditions in advance at the respective faculties.
The application deadline for all bachelor programs in economics is July 15 for the winter semester and January 15 for the summer semester. You can apply online via Hochschulstart and the application portal of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. Please note that for the 2-subject bachelor you have to apply for both subjects separately! Other deadlines and conditions may apply for the second subject. Therefore, please inform yourself in advance at the respective faculties.
In order to be able to apply for a higher semester, you must first have yourself classified in a higher semester by our examination office. You need credited modules of at least 15 ECTS to be classified for the second semester. Contact details and opening hours of the examination office can be found here.
Previously completed coursework from other degree programs may be credited to your studies at the Faculty of Management and Economics. Please contact the examination office of our faculty and submit your transcript of records and, if applicable, the corresponding module descriptions. Please note that the recognition of academic achievements may take some time.
Unfortunately, an apprenticeship completed prior to the study program cannot be credited for the study program in any form.
It may be possible to be admitted to a bachelor program without a high school diploma. Please contact the central student advisory service of the RUB directly for more information.
