The application deadline for the winter semester is 1 September (Non-EU: 1 September*) and for the summer semester February 28th (Non-EU: February 05th).

Tips on writing the covering letter
Confidence in the English language is essential for success in your studies. Thus, one purpose of the covering letter is to give us an idea of your language skills. Describe to us in one to one-and-a-half DIN A4 pages (font: Arial 12, single line spacing) why you are interested in the course you have chosen, why you would like to study at UE, and what your expectations are. You should also include in your covering letter any special characteristics or inspiring experience based on previous internships or work experience.
