If you have missed the application or registration deadline, or if you were not assigned to your desired study placement or desired location, you can apply for placement in a restricted course of studies via the lottery procedure. Placements are assigned by lottery only if there are still vacant places after the admission process has been completed. You can visit the official list of study placements throughout Germany, the Studienplatzbörse (only in German), for information on higher education institutions and on study programs where placements are available.
