Students with a German degree

Students with a first degree in Germany (Bachelor or equivalent) apply directly via Freie Universität Berlin. You have to send several (signed) documents via posted mail (not email) and upload some files in an application portal. Please read all information concerning the application process carefully.

Students with a Foreign degree

Foreign prospective students who have not received their university degree in Germany have to apply via uni-assist. Uni-assist is an administrative agency that will first check the sufficiency of your documents and then forward them to Freie Universität Berlin. Subject-specific entry requirements are not checked by uni-assist. The university itself decides whether to admit each candidate. 

Please assure that your application arrives at the uni-assist office before the application deadline ends! Due to the high number of applicants, uni-assist may need a longer period of time to process and check your documents. Therefore, we recommend to apply early and to send all documents to uni-assist as soon as possible.
