Application

You can easily create the application form yourself in My assist:

1. Enter your applicant information and educational history if you have not already done so. Then you will be able to create your applications. Do not forget to save your entries!

2. Go back to the start and select your desired course of study. To do so, use the search below “Course Catalogue.”

Tip: It is best to specify only the desired semester and university to be able to receive the university’s entire course offer. You can choose your desired course of study from the result list.
If you apply for a preliminary review documentation (VPD), the application may display the academic field "alle Fächer" (= all subjects) in the result list for some universities.

3. Once you have found your desired course of study, click on “Select.” Select the course semester and click on “Add to selection.” Now go to the “Selection list” by clicking on the box symbol. Click on “Show additional application-related questions” and answer the questions completely and truthfully.

4. For the last step, click on “Proceed to checkout” to pay the handling fee and submit your application. You will receive a confirmation of receipt by email, generally within 24 hours.

In order to apply for a preparatory German language course or the DSH exam, you generally simply have to apply for a course of study in My assist. Select the course you would like to study after the German language course or the DSH exam. To do so, use the search below “Course Catalogue”:

  1. It is best to specify only the desired semester and university to be able to receive the university’s entire course offer.

  2. You found your desired course of study? Then click on “Select.” Fill in the application form completely and truthfully.

  3. Do you see the question “Are you applying for admission to the DSH exam / a German language course?” Answer „Yes“ to this question.

Two additional notes:

  • uni-assist is not automatically responsible for all applications for the DSH exam or the German language course at a uni-assist university. It is best to find out from the university directly whether you should apply for the DSH exam or the German language course via uni-assist. If so, also ask whether the university uses a separate application form for the DSH exam or the German language course in My assist.
  • Please also find out the requirements for attending a German language course or the DSH exam from the university.
