Prospective students holding a foreign university entrance qualification have to apply for the first semester in a study program within the university-internal admission procedure as well as for Studienkolleg via uni-assist for Freie Universität Berlin.
If you earned your university entrance qualification in a country other than Germany, you are already enrolled in a core subject at Freie Universität Berlin and would like to apply for one or more new module/s, please use the online application portal for applicants with German HZB for university-internal procedure.
Those applicants, who have turned 55 by the application deadline, can only be considered in the admission process if there are - regarding the personal situation - serious scientific or professional reasons for taking up studies.
Uni-assist needs the following documents of all applicants as officially certified copy to evaluate the formal requirements:
|school leaving and university certificates||which are part of your university entrance qualification|
|official translations of all certificates if issued in any language other than English or German||issued by sworn translators only or by an institution being entitled to translations for official purposes|
|proof of sufficient knowledge of German||depending on the requested study course|
|earlier university degree or certificate with grade||applicants for a second course of study (Zweitstudienbewerber) - if you have already graduated in Germany or an EU member state|
|The following documents have to be submitted via mail but are not required as officially certified copies:|
|written statement of serious scientific or professional reasons||if one has turned 55|
|written explanatory statement why a second degree is needed regarding all study subjects||if you are “Zweitstudienbewerber/in” (applicant for a second course of study)|
If you hold the German or an EU citizenship or if you hold the citizenship of Iceland, Liechtenstein, or Norway and want to make a special application (Sonderantrag), please submit the following documents in addition to the above mentioned:
If you are a minor at the time of the application deadline (January 15 or July 15) living in Berlin or Brandenburg with a person who has custody of you, you can apply within the online application for the quota for minors.
