Shivam is asking What is NC and NO NC in German universities? \n
\n\n\n\n

The lower NC a German university or a program has, the more selective it is. For example, the economics program at the University of Frankfurt has a NC of 1.9, meaning that the student with the lowest GPA accepted last semester had a GPA of 1.9.

Types of numerus clausus

\n\n\n

There are two different types of NCs: local and subject. An example of a local numerus clausus is the NC for economics at Frankfurt; this is specifically limited to one subject at one German university. Other subjects at the same university carry a different NC; for example, law courses at Frankfurt have a different NC than economics.

\n\n\n

The second type of NC is linked to a subject, across the whole of Germany. This applies to subjects that are nationally oversubscribed, currently including medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry and architecture.

Courses where a nationwide numerus clausus applies are very difficult to get into and if you have a GPA under 1.5, it’s probably not even worth your effort even making the application. If you do apply for one of these subjects, you may need to do so through a centralized applications process (depending on where you come from).

\n\n\n

It’s important to note that the numerus clausus is only a guide. It fluctuates every semester a little, but at least it tells you if you have a shot. There are also some universities that have more places available than applicants for a certain subject. These programs are called NC frei (NC free), as they have no set numerus clausus.
