Please apply in a timely manner via uni-assist for confirmation of preliminary review (Vorprüfungsbescheid, VPD) of your certificates. For this purpose, you only need to electronically upload your documents. Please do not apply for a single degree programme (einzelnen Studiengang) through uni-assist, but rather for “all subjects” (alle Fächer). This is possible all year round!


If you need to take or have already taken an entrance assessment examination (Feststellungsprüfung, FSP) at a preparatory college (Studienkolleg), you can simply upload your foreign educational certificates to the uni-assist portal; the entrance assessment examination (FSP) does not need to be checked by uni-assist.



You do not need a confirmation of preliminary review if you:


  • submit a verification report (Prüfbericht) from uni-assist.
  • submit a certificate from a German office for the recognition of non-German certificates and diplomas (Zeugnisanerkennungsstelle) with a grade point average.
  • submit an APS certificate with a grade point average.
  • are enrolling in a doctoral degree programme. For this, you need a confirmation of supervision (Betreuungsbestätigung).
  • have previously successfully applied to the University of Augsburg. Please enclose a copy of your most recent letter of admission (Zulassungsbescheid). If you are already enrolled, please write the enrolment number (Matrikelnummer) on the admission request (Antrag auf Zulassung).
