Handling fees

We assess your international educational certificates and check additional criteria set by the universities you want to apply to. The handling fees are set by the uni-assist universities. Fees must be paid irrespective of the result of the checking procedure.

In one application semester these handling fees apply:

Costs for the first desired course of study: 75.00 EUR
For each additional desired course of study: 30.00 EUR

(System of handling fees)

  • You pay per desired course of study. A desired course of study can be an application for a bachelor or master's course or an application for a Studienkolleg (preparatory course) or a preparatory German language course.
  • Are you reapplying for a new semester? If so, the fee is 75.00 EUR again for the first desired study course and 30.00 EUR for every other desired course of study.
  • These costs are the same for all forms of application, whether standard or VPD procedure. The fees cover registration, processing and evaluation of your documents and educational certificates, irrespective of the results of this procedure.

Example for one application semester

University 1  
Desired course of study A 75.00 EUR
Desired course of study B 30.00 EUR
University 2  
Desired course of study C 30.00 EUR
Total 135.00 EUR

Some universities pay for their applicants’ handling fees. In that case, your application is free. You can find out more under Cost transfer.
