We therefore recommend that you apply early in order to ensure timely enrolment in the event of admission.

  • You can start looking for accommodation early,
  • You will receive your student ID card with your semester ticket (RMV) early,
  • You can register for courses, modules and seminars up to one month before the semester begins and can plan, prepare and look forward to your studies,
  • You may already be enrolled at the TU Darmstadt if the orientation events for first-semester students start before courses begin, and
  • You may be able to take care of BaföG and child benefit at an early stage.
