Step 2

In reply you will get an email stating whether or not you fulfill the general requirements. This email does not state anything about admission. Upon receiving the email stating general fulfillment of requirements, you may upload all relevant papers on the platform of uni-assist - a federal organisation which evaluates international degrees and transforms the grades to the German grading system.

Be aware of paying the fee of 75 Euro!

Important: Applicants from China, India, Vietnam and Mongolia must apply to “Akademische Prüfstelle - APS” before or while sending their documents to uni-assist.

Step 3

After receiving your application "uni-assist" will send you by email the acknowledgement of receipt They will inform you, if something is missing and you still have 3 weeks time to submit it later. Only after this step is completed, will your application be considered in the official selection procedure.


We will make our final decision based on the evaluation done by uni-assist. We will inform all students in May/June, if they are offered a place in the program or not. That leaves you enough time to apply for the visa, which might in some cases take up to three months.

In case you have trouble getting the visa or due to a late visa, must arrive late, or withdra your application, please inform us.
