A procedure by which popular places of study are allocated using the service portal hochschulstart.de.
Short for: "Dialogorientiertes Service-Verfahren" (dialogue-oriented service procedure)
Every university may choose whether to allocate places using the DoSV. The DoSV can be used for undergraduate courses. It is not used for Master's courses.
If you apply through uni-assist for a course of study that is allocated using the DoSV, you need to register in advance at dosv.hochschulstart.de.
