Application and Enrollment Deadlines

For deadlines marked in the table as a "cut-off date", the decisive date is the day on which the documents are received by the University of Potsdam, not the postmark date. If a cut-off period ends on a Saturday, Sunday or a public holiday, the deadline is not extended to the next workday (Section 2 subsection 3 no. 2 of the Brandenburg Administrative Procedure Act in conjunction with Section 31 subsection 3 sentence 2 of the Administrative Procedure Act).
