  • International applicants outside the EU or EEA without a German university entrance qualification (Abitur) for advanced years in undergraduate studies
  • All German and international applicants for selected Master programs
  • German or EU citizens holding a German university entrance qualification for the first term of a B.Sc. in Psychology (after registration for „hochschulstart“)

Before starting the online application in HISinOne, please inform yourself about the regulations concerning the starting term for your program of studies, entry requirements, and application deadlines. These informations can be found here.

  • If you already have a Uni-Account, register in HISinOne and start your application. Otherwise select self-registration.
  • For the first application, please ensure correctness of information entered under entrance qualification. This information can not be edited after you have submitted an application.
  • When submitting an application, you will check and confirm the correctness of the information provided in a checkbox at the bottom of the page. Only then will you be able to submit the application.
  • After having submitted the application, please print the data control sheet for your own reference. From summer semester 2020 onwards you are not required any more to send the signed application form via surface mail (see FAQ below).

Good luck!

I am a student at Freiburg University and have a Uni-Account. Can I use this account to log in to the portal and to apply?

  • Yes. Please use your Uni-Account to log in and start your application.

I have alreday registered myself as applicant in the HISinOne portal of Campus Management, but I can't log in.

There are various possible reasons for login problems:

Uploading a document fails

  • You get an error message like „unexpected network error occured“. The Campus-Management-System HISinOne supports various operating systems and web browser. Individual erros cases can be caused by outdated browser versions (especially Safari on Apple devices). In such cases please try another browser (e.g. Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome) or device.
