The resulting annual rhythm of the study year has an effect on the admission law in such a way that in this study program only applicants are admitted to the odd semester (3, 5, 7, ...) in the winter semester, and only applicants are admitted to the even semester (2, 4, 6, ...) in the summer semester.
