The self-disclosure form

You are missing important documents due to your refugee status, such as educational certificates or transcripts of marks? You can still apply for a study programme in Germany! It’s simple:

You register and submit all the documents that you have. We will determine that some documents are missing. We will then send you the self-disclosure form. Complete the form, entering information about your education: exams, grades and degrees. We will then forward your application and the self-disclosure form to your chosen university.

Please keep in mind that you need to apply as early as possible! If documents are missing and you need to fill out the self-disclosure form, the application procedure will take slightly longer than usual!
