How to apply: uni-assist

The application portal at the website of uni-assist

Reading about how to apply for the Master, I soon realized that I was probably going to apply via uni-assist. Uni-assist is a German service that assists international students while applying for a university program in Germany. Not all German universities use uni-assist, but many do. So if you are a foreign student, have earned your previous degree outside Germany and are going to apply for a program there, it’s likely that you’re going to apply via uni-assist and not to the university directly. The best thing is always to check in the university website whether that’s the case for you or not.

Uni-assist reviews each application and checks if it meets the prerequisites of the universities, but the universities decide whether a candidate is admitted or not.

On the website of uni-assist you will find a number of sections. At “applicant’s data” you will provide information about yourself and your previous education which later will be used automatically for all your applications. At “applications” you will choose the programs for which you want to apply, submit your applications and check the status of those you have already submitted. At “documents” you’ll be able to upload documents for the applications and check the ones you have sent. At “priorities” you’ll be able to arrange your applications in order of preference, see your chances for admission in the universities you have chosen and indicate, after the application process, the university at which you have enrolled.

Also at the website you will find more details about uni-assist itself, the application process, costs and application fees, the delivery and results of applications and so on.

Uni-assist is a great service because it allows students to work their applications in a secure way with the least possible worries. When applying as a foreign student it can be an added worry, besides preparing all the documents and the application itself, not being familiar with the details of the process. It’s great that with uni-assist students can be free from this worry and able to focus more on everything else that’s required for their application.


A very useful article.Thanks all.

Dear fredy,

I can’t say for sure because I’m no expert, but I’ll tell you from what I’ve learned so far in my case.
All the Master’s programs which I have seen only mention that a bachelor or undergraduate certificate is necessary, I have never seen one mention that a pre-university certificate would be necessary, so I don’t think you should worry.

In any case, I think you should ask the university you want to apply to about this. They generally have an info service or the admissions office will be able to advise you. This can generally be done via e-mail.

I hope this helps and that you solve all your doubts!

All the best,

Dear Sir / madam,

I need to pay uni assist application fees by using credit card. Isn’t there a system
Of online credit card Payment ? Because As per information given on uni assist
website for credit card payment i will have enter all my credit card details
On credit card form ( given on the website) and send the form to uni assist .

Isn’t it very risky ? With all details of credit card anybody can misuse the details ?
Could you please provide the option of online payment by credit card so that risk of
Revealing all credit card details will be eliminated ? And also fees will be directly
Transferred into uni assist account.

Please suggest the right solution . As many applicants may not be having
International bank account to directly transfer the fees in uni assist bank account.
