Uni-assist and how to apply via uni-assist

Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences works with uni-assist, a Berlin-based service which processes and evaluates the academic credentials of international applicants applying to German universities. Uni-assist determines if foreign academic qualifications meet the German state and federal requirements for admission to higher education. Decisions are based on the legal framework provided by the German Central Office for Foreign Education (Zentralstelle für ausländisches Bildungswesen – ZaB) and the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs in Germany (Kultusministerkonferenz).

All international applicants must apply through uni-assist. There are no exceptions! Applications submitted by other means will not be considered.

To avoid any delays in the subsequent visa process, international applicants are strongly advised to apply as early as possible!

Uni-assist charges a processing fee for your application to Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences. This fee remains entirely with uni-assist. Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences does not charge any additional application fees.
