The application via uni-assist is an online application. Upload your certificates in their original language and as a translation into German or English.

Sobald uni-assist deine Unterlagen geprüft und dir die Hochschule Magdeburg-Stendal einen Studienplatz anbietet, musst du deine Dokumente als beglaubigte und übersetzte Kopie (Deutsch oder Englisch) bei der Hochschule einreichen.

After Application


An enrolment certificate is needed for the visa appointment.
In some countries it can take a very long time to get an appointment at the German embassy. Therefore, it is recommended to book a visa appointment as early as possible, even if the applicant has not received the enrolment certificate yet. However, it is important to bring the enrolment certificate to the visa appointment.

Nationals of non-EU states must demonstrate, when applying for a visa, that they have sufficient financial means (currently €934 per month) for the first year of their studies.

Notice of admission

Applications for programmes with no admission restrictions are processed continuously. Notices of admission will be sent by the university via the university’s Onlinecampus portal.

For programmes with an aptitude test, applicants are informed of the result in the university’s Onlinecampus portal after the department has evaluated the test.


As soon as you have received a Letter of Acceptance, please reply to the acceptance of your place of study:

  1. Submit a paper Application for Admission (by post or in person).
  2. Submit any missing officially certified copy of your documents (by post or in person).
  3. Transfer the semester fee.

Only then the enrolment is completed.

The enrolment certificate will then be sent by post (within Germany) or by e-mail (outside Germany).
