For some of its member universities, uni-assist does not process study applications, only applications for preliminary review documentation (abbr. VPD). Uni-assist can issue you with a VPD, which you will then need to send as part of your application directly to the university before the end of the application period - please leave enough time for all of this!
Further information on the VPD procedure and participating universities can be found here.
Applications for study courses with restricted admission can be coordinated via the dialogue-oriented service procedure (DoSV) of the Stiftung für Hochschulzulassung.
Further information on how to apply for study courses involving the DoSV procedure can be found here.
- Beuth Hochschule für Technik Berlin
Applications must be made via the Beuth Hochschule’s online application service. Only there will you find the special application form that you need to send to uni-assist along with all required documents. Unfortunately the uni-assist online application alone is insufficient for an application to the Beuth Hochschule. The DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) application form is not accepted by the Beuth Hochschule.
