  • What happens if I cannot enter the country for the summer semester 2022 due to the pandemic?

    A return to classroom teaching is planned for the summer semester 2022. This means that you must be on site when the lecture period begins. However, since no one can foresee the further course of the pandemic, the most up-to-date information will be posted here regularly.

  • What can I do if I cannot take an English or German test in time?

    You can still apply if you do not yet have the required English or German test results, but are registered for a test. You can find details on page 2 of the English language certificate information sheet or on this German language certificate information sheet, respectively.

    Please note that in order to register, you must provide proof that you have taken and passed the language test (by the end of the enrolment deadline). You can submit the official certificate within the 1st semester.

  • I can´t get my diplomas/final certificates in time – what can I do?

    If you do not yet have your diploma documents, you can apply with your current Transcript of Records instead. Final degree documents must be submitted by the end of the summer semester at the very latest.  

  • What happens if I could not enrol?

    If you are still interested in studying at the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg, please press the button “relinquish university place” in the BTU applicant portal myBTU. You can renew your application via the BTU applicant portal myBTU:

    • create a new application form for the current semester via myBTU
    • Upload the last admission letter in the question about the "Bachelor's or Master's entrance qualification”
    • If additional documents need to be submitted, we will inform you about this when you are admitted.

    Please note: an extension is only possible under the condition that your course of study is still offered at BTU.

    If you have been admitted to a study programme with restricted admission (e.g. Biotechnology, Social Work), you will take part in the allocation procedure again with your application.

    For questions please contact: internationaladmission(at)b-tu.de.

  • Can I now apply directly via the uni during the Corona pandemic?

    The development of the Corona pandemic is still dynamic. Our university is continuously monitoring the situation and following the advice of authorities and experts. Whether further adjustments may be necessary will be decided at a future date if necessary. Therefore, please keep yourself up to date here.

  • Do I need certified copies for an application to the BTU?

    You no longer need certified copies for an application at the BTU. Simply upload simple scans of your documents and the official translations in German or English during the online application process.

  • The postal services in my country are closed. I cannot send documents by post – what can I do?

    You do not need to send documents by mail or courier to Uni-Assist or to our university. You only have to fill in the online application form and upload your documents.

  • I applied via uni-assist very shortly before the deadline and have not yet received a reply from them. I am worried about the processing time at uni-assist – what can I do?

    All online applications submitted and completed by the closing date will be considered for the selection procedure. The uni-assist pre-check does not have to be completed before the deadline. There is therefore no need to include uni-assist processing times in your preparations.

    You will be informed as soon as your application documents have been forwarded to our university.

    Uni-Assist also has FAQs on the topic of Corona on its website.

  • What´s going to happen in the next few weeks?

    The development of the Corona pandemic is very dynamic. Our university is continuously monitoring the situation and following the advice of authorities and experts. Whether further adjustments may be necessary will be decided at a future date if necessary. Therefore, please keep yourself up to date here.
