Many universities arrange for applications for certain study programmes to be processed via the Dialogue-orientated Service Procedure (DoSV). Read on to find out more about what this is, and how you can apply.


What is the Dialogue-orientated Service Procedure (“DoSV”)?

Universities use the DoSV to coordinate applications for certain study programmes via a central database run by the Higher Education Admissions Trust (Stiftung für Hochschulzulassung, “SfH”). More information is available on www.hochschulstart.de.

Unless the AID and AAN are both correctly entered, we will be unable to forward your application to the universities.

Only use the uni-assist online portal to submit your application; please do not use hochschulstart.

The DoSV is only relevant for applications to the first semester of study programmes leading to a bachelor degree, a "Diplom” certificate or to state examinations. You may submit a maximum of twelve applications per semester for DoSV study programmes.

 

What are the benefits of the DoSV system?

The DoSV coordinates the allocation of study places, so that everyone gets their preferred place and that no places are left vacant.

What this means in practice:

You may submit up to twelve applications per semester.
