3.4.1 Preliminary consideration of applications by uni-assist

Humboldt-Universität submits the applications of potential students with non-German higher education entrance qualifications (► 3.3.1) to uni-assist (Arbeits- und Servicestelle für internationale Studienbewerbungen e.V.) for preliminary consideration. The procedure concerns applications for pre-university courses preparing for degree studies (Studienkolleg) as well as those for standard courses leading to the Bachelor's degree, to the State Examination or to the Master's degree. German citizens with non-German higher education entrance qualifications or educational qualifications must also apply via uni-assist.

Students who want to start their studies (1st semester) in medicine (Modellstudiengang) or dentistry at Charité must also submit their applications to uni-assist. EU citizens and equal candidates submit their applications to hochschulstart.de (former ZVS).

Applicants for all Master courses (Master of Arts, Master of Science, Master of Education) submit their applications to uni-assist, following the deadlines below. More detailed information on the various courses offered, on the language requirements for entering Master courses as well as details on the application procedure, can be obtained in the online course catalogue. Please note that some international and career-based Master's courses may require an additional fee. Application deadlines for some courses may vary, and admission to some of the courses is the responsibility of the faculties concerned and application documents must be submitted directly to them.

Uni-assist does not give advice on admission requirements of particular universities. Please contact the university in question. For Humboldt, please contact the office for initial counselling for international applicants ( 3.1).

Preliminary consideration by uni-assist carries a mandatory charge. However, only one set of application documents is necessary to apply simultaneously to several higher education institutions belonging to uni-assist. Uni-assist provides a list of all member institutions as well information on the application documents.

Fully completed applications must be sent to:
