For Applicants Application

Application process

Applications are handled over the university's of Applied Sciences application portal at

Important information for international non-EU-students: Please note your country-specific visa deadlines in order to start studying in Germany. We can only guarantee you a place at the university of Applied Sciences if you have a valid visa to study in Germany. Please contact the German embassy in your home country for exact deadlines.

Application documents required (please upload with your application):

  • Certified copy of your last school-leaving certificate acquired abroad and of your university diploma (bachelor or equivalent certificate). If the certificates are in English, no translation is needed. Otherwise these documents require a certified German translation. Before applying, applicants from abroad should visit first to check if their foreign school-leaving certificate qualifies them for enrolment in a German university of applied sciences.
  • Health insurance: foreign students will also need to provide proof of their health insurance at the university. This is mandatory for enrolment. You can either take out a student health insurance from a health insurance company of your choice, or have a confirmation of the existing health insurance issued in your home country (only applicable for the EU).
  • German language qualification is not needed if you apply for a English program. Students need to prove their proficiency in English through one of the standardized language tests. Students from countries with English as (one of) the official language(s) are not required to take a test.

The study contract comes into force once all records and certificates have been received by the university of Applied Sciences, and after the fees have been fully paid in advance.
