  • For more detailed information regarding international applications, please see ‘International Degree Seeking Students’ section on our webpage.
  • Document Verification Certificate (VPD from UniAssist)
    • For applicants from non-European Union countries, we have made adaptation in our online application platform. To check formally required documents, we are using the services of "Uni Assist", a widely used system in Germany. You will be re-routed to this system during the application process.
    • For you, this procedure ensures a transparent, straightforward and facilitated document check, with less bureaucratic hurdlesand fewer authentication requirements. This should help you to get a safe access to studies at our university.  After completion of the process with Uni Assist, you will receive a preliminary review document (‘Vorprüfungsdokumentation – VPD”), which you use to complete your application in our system. For Uni Assist's services, you have to pay a single fee of 79 EURO. On our side, application remains completely free and with your VPD document, you can apply at any of our study programmes at any time.
    • If you have already a "passed" code from Uni Assist, and did not yet apply with us, please do so, and let us know. We then might process your application faster.
