The admission process at Leuphana is carried out in different steps. First of all, study places are allocated in each major according to the legally prescribed advance and special quotas as well as according to the waiting time. Subsequently, the applicants with the best 25% points in each major receive admission in the so-called best quota. Admissions for the remaining study places will be given following the selection process, consisting of a study aptitude test and, if necessary, a selection interview.
