uni-assist assesses whether your international certificates are equivalent to those issued by German schools and universities, and whether they entitle you to apply for admission to German university. At the universities’ request, uni-assist can assess other application requirements, for example, the candidate’s language skills.
With uni-assist, you submit one set of application documents and apply for a study place at several universities at once. Apply as early as possible! If you happen to forget a required document, this will give you ample time to submit it before the deadline arrives. Therefore, send in your application to uni-assist early enough. The assessment process at uni-assist can take between four and six weeks. If your documents are in order and you meet the formal admission requirements, uni-assist forwards your application to the universities for consideration.
The final admission decision is made by the university – not by uni-assist.
uni-assist is a non-profit organisation and does not receive any kind of public funding. As a result, applicants are usually charged for its services (see Expenses).
