After you have chosen your desired course of study, answer the required additional questions and submit your application electronically. The preliminary evaluation of your certificates is subject to a fee. The payment has to be done directly at time of submission of the application.

Note: Please apply only for one course of study! If you apply for more courses with different core subjects, only the first course of study will be considered.

After successful submission of your online application you have to send the required documents via post to uni-assist.

Please note that all certificates have to be submitted in certified copies and sworn translation!

All other documents that are not asked for in the application form and that are not admission requirements for the desired course of study, e.g. photos, module guides, job references, police clearance certificates, transparent pockets, folders, etc. are not neccessary, take time and money, complicate the process for uni-assist and us and will not improve your chances for admission.

At time of registration – or when you choose a course of study which takes part at the dialogue-oriented service procedure (DoSV) at the latest – you have to enter a BID (Bewerber-ID) and a BAN (Bewerber-Authentifizierungs-Nummer). In that case please register at first.

The registration at hochschulstart is only neccessary for restricted-admission (NC) courses of study. You can see whether your desired course of study is an admission-restricted course on the respective course page and in the overview of our study programs.
