Corona-related adjustment of the entrance exam

The entrance exam for the bachelor's degree program in sports science, sports management, and physical education and sports will be offered in February 2021 in a modified form on 4 individual days due to Corona conditions.

The SE is conducted for the applicants (in groups of up to 60 persons) on a single day in each case between 8:00 and 20:00. The assignment of the applicants to the respective examination day takes place after the registration deadline and will be communicated in writing by the beginning of February.

Attention: For some skill tests (gymnastics and swimming men, gymnastics men / women, volleyball men / women) the examination conditions have changed compared to the last SE. Gymnastics and Volleyball exams must be submitted in the form of self-filmed videos by January 13, 2021. Please see the current manuals and limits for exact information. 

Information on current closures of sports facilities: Due to Covid 19-related security measures, many sports facilities (e.g. indoor swimming pools) are currently inaccessible to non-professional athletes. We are aware that this will limit training conditions for the February entrance exam. However, we expect that the sports facilities will be reopened in January and that candidates will be able to complete their preparation for the exam. Thus, testing limits will remain unchanged from the September 2020 exam. Nevertheless, we are continually re-evaluating Covid-19-related security measures and will respond accordingly should the sports venues continue to be closed extensively in January.
