Online applications, acceptances, and rejections
Bochum peculiarity: applicants can say online immediately after they have been admitted whether they want to accept or reject their admission. This means that the RUB is always up to date as regards the number of places it has left to allocate. For this reason a dynamic reserve system is conducted in Bochum at an early stage, which ensures that no place that is wanted is not taken.
