There is no admission restriction ("NC") for a Communication Science programme, but there are special admission requirements. This distinction is important, because we do not have a fixed number of places to be allocated, nor are there any so-called "successor places". The professional aptitude of prospective students is assessed in a aptitude test ("Eigungsfeststellungsverfahren").
