Step 1 Get information in advance
If you would like to study in Germany and uni-assist handles your application, this is the page for you. If you are interested in a Bachelor or Master’s course, you can find out about the requirements here. Then, ask the university of your choice about the application criteria for your chosen course of study.
If you have all the information you need and uni-assist is handling your application, continue to step 2.
Step 2 Plan your application
Check how to apply via uni-assist. Plan your application using our checklists and notes on deadlines. In some cases, special rules may apply, for example if you need a preliminary review documentation (VPD).
Continue with step 3.
Step 3 Assemble your documents
For all the documents required, get copies and certifications as necessary. Check whether a translation is required and, if necessary, have one made by a Court-certified translator.
Once all your documents are ready, continue with step 4.
Step 4 Apply online
Register for the online portal My assist. Create an online application for each chosen course. Upload documents for your application(s).
Once you have applied online, continue with step 5.
Step 5 Pay all fees
Pay the handling fees for all your applications. Once we have received your payment and your documents, we can start processing your application.
Once you have paid, continue with step 6.
Step 6 Send and Track
Send us all required documents by letter. Track what is happening at uni-assist and at the universities.
