Application Procedure

Most international applicants have to apply via uni assist, an external organisation that conducts the formal evaluation of the candidates’ academic qualifications. German Nationals and graduates from a German university apply directly to our university. For more information on the application process, please see the websites of our university's Admissions and Registrar's Office.

Deadline for applicants who have foreign degrees and require a visa to study in Germany: 15 July
Deadline for applicants who have foreign degrees and do not require a visa to study in Germany: extended to 15 August 2020
Deadline for applicants who have a degree from a German university: 31 August

However, we strongly encourage you to send in your application as early as possible. Do not wait until shortly before the deadline! Applications for the winter semester typically open via uni assist in March.

For the dual degree programme with Deakin University, the application deadline for all applicants is 15 July.
