  • Recognition and documents

    Applicants for bachelor's and master's programmes who did not obtain their previous educational records (certificates, diplomas) in the Federal Republic of Germany have to have their school certificates acknowledged by uni-assist. The document you receive from uni-assist (VPD - Vorprüfungsdokumentation = preliminary review documentation) can then be used to apply to us directly.

    Please check the website uni-assist for further information about the application form and the required documents.

    Please note that uni assist charges an administration fee for their services.

    Applicants for degree programmes from China, Vietnam and India can only be admitted with a certificate from the Academic Evaluation Centre of the German Embassy (APS). For a bachelor programme you can apply directly at our university with this certificate with an average mark.

    Please note: For applications for the summer semester 2023, applicants with an Indian degree can apply with the VPD by uni-assist. However, if you receive an admission , you need to submit the original APS certificate for enrolment.
