Information for International applicants

Educational qualifications of foreign applicants can only be treated as advanced technical college certificates (“Fachhochschulreife”) if they have been acknowledged as being equal. All persons who acquired their educational qualifications abroad have to follow the preliminary review documentation (VPD) by uni-assist e.V., Geneststr. 5, 10829 Berlin.
Independent from this procedure, an application has to be made in due time via the FHWS online application portal. The preliminary review documentation is a mandatory part of your application documents.
For general information about the acknowledgment of foreign education qualifications, please refer to the responsible office at the Bavarian Ministry of Education or to the Central Office for Foreign Education (anabin) at the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Länder.
