Application for German and preparatory courses
The application consists of three steps:
We assume that there will be more applicants than there are places in the courses. The places will be given according to the time of entry of the application, meaning first come first served. Your chances of getting into the program are higher the earlier you apply.
All boxes in the online application form are mandatory to answer. The evidence of residential status and secondary school certificate must be handed in to us; all other documents are optional.
In order to take part in the Welcome@FUBerlin Program, it is necessary that you have a university entrance qualification “Hochschulzugangsberechtigung (HZB)”. To be admitted into the program we require evidence that you have a university entrance qualification. In order to obtain this HZB, you must send your school grades and records (and if applicable your university records) to uni-assist, in order for them to evaluate these documents. The Freie Universität Berlin has commissioned uni-assist to evaluate all international documents and certificates. Since the process is relatively long and time consuming, we recommend that you start as early as possible. The uni-assist assessments for the HZB can be handed in until August 15 (15.08.2018), but the earlier the better.
For the registration for cost exemption for the university qualification evaluation, you require a „Hochschulbescheinigung“ or a university attestation. This attestation can be obtained by attending one of our advisory sessions within our office hours.
For the „Hochschulbescheinigung“ or university attestation, we require the following information*:
*must be identical to the information on your ID or Passport

The assessment procedure at uni-assist can be done at any point in time free of charge, regardless of which offer one chooses to apply for.

Since there will most likely be more applicants than places, we will be carrying out a language test. This is to better help us choose which applicants to accept into the program and how to place each applicant into the appropriate course in the program. If one gets a result of below an A2 level, then their application will be rejected. For the preparatory courses in the Studienkolleg a test result of B1 is mandatory. The invitations for this language test will be sent end of July. The language test will commence in the second week of August, and the confirmation of participants will be sent end of August.
A minimum result of A2 is required to participate in the language courses. For preparatory classes in the Studienkolleg a B1 result is necessary. The language tests are mandatory. There will only be one repeat appointment for excused absence.
