Required documents

You've made your decision, and you're ready to apply? Here is what you need to provide:

  • The originals  of all foreign certificates in the language they were issued in. If you wand to submit copies these have to be certified by a notary public or an official of a local authority in the Federal Republic of Germany. Please add translations done by a sworn translator ("öffentlich bestellter und allgemein beeidigter Übersetzer"), if the foreign certificates are issued in other languages than English or French.
  • A current curriculum vitae (CV) including a complete list of your academic record at institutions of higher education
  • Proof of German language proficiency. Because the primary language of instruction is German, you must be able to prove your proficiency in German through a result from one of the following tests:

    • TestDAF (Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache, “Test of German as a Foreign Language”)
    • DSH (Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang, “German Language Test for University Matriculation”)
    • GSD (Großes Sprachdiplom) from the Goethe Institute
    • DSD II (Deutsches Sprachdiplom, Stufe II), a test of German at the secondary level for students at German language schools abroad

      More details can be found here (in German)

  • If you have completed a vocational apprenticeship, a copy of your certificate.
  • If you are transferring from another institution, a copy of your official academic transcript from the previous institution (please use this form)

Co-operative education

All the Bachelor programmes feature a required, semester-long internship, typically in the fourth or fifth semester. You may also apply for a form of co-operative education called Studium mit vertiefter Praxis, where you work in a business between lecture periods throughout your studies. This is a chance to apply your newly acquired skills early, form a relationship with a prospective future employer, and earn some money to help finance your studies, all at the same time. For more information about co-operative education at the Aschaffenburg University of Applied Sciences, contact the International Office.
