If you have already applied via uni-assist this year or last year and would like to reapply, take note of the information on this page. If you applied earlier than last year, please apply following the regular process.


As of 23 October 2019, you simply submit your applications via our new online portal My assist.

Did you already apply via uni-assist before 23 October? Then please also register in My assist and make sure to add your old applicant number to help us match your data to your new account.

Good to know: For technical reasons, you can only see new uploads and new applications on My assist. However, your old data can still be viewed by our team. If you would like to view your old data, simply log in to the old online portal:

Safekeeping period

For how long does uni-assist keep application documents?

We keep your application documents until the end of the year following the receipt of your documents. We can reuse in stock documents for new applications.

An example:

Application documents received on: 10 May 2018

Application documents will be kept until: 31 December 2019


If you send us a new application within this period or submit new documents, the safekeeping period for all existing documents is reset.

After the safekeeping period ends, we destroy the documents.



Get information, plan ahead and assemble your documents

Get information on current courses, admission criteria, deadlines and application procedures from your preferred universities. Not every course is offered for each semester. Admission criteria and deadlines can vary from semester to semester.

Always check with the university of your choice to find out which documents you need. You need to submit any documents we do not have yet in time.

Please note:
  • Were your certificates and documents complete when you last applied? Was something missing that we asked you to submit?
  • Does the university require additional application documents for this new application?
  • Does the university require an up-to-date CV?
  • Have you received new certificates that may be relevant for your application?

If so, please prepare the documents in the form requested.
