Applying via uni-assist

Uni-assist e.V. is the "University Application Service for International Students." Uni-assist processes applications from international students on behalf of Technische Universität München.

Uni-assist performs preliminary processing and evaluation of the applicant's university entrance qualification materials, running a check of the applicants’ certificates to determine which grades they have on the German grading system. This preliminary evaluation informs applicants whether they qualify to study all subjects (general qualification) or only certain subjects (subject-restricted qualification).

Who has to apply via uni-assist?

  • All applicants for a bachelor's or teaching degree, who did not obtain their university entrancy qualification in Germany or from a school that offers the equivalent of the German Abitur exam. This also applies for applicants pursuing a spot in an advanced semester of any degree program.
  • NB: You still have to apply via uni-assist even if you already have an attestation from the Bavarian Certification Recognition Office, the Zeugnisanerkennungsstelle, or from any other German state.

Who does not have to apply via uni-assist?

  • All applicants who obtained their university entrance qualification in Germany or their Abitur certificate (graduation diploma) from a school that applies the German Abitur examination rules.
  • Applicants who have completed preparatory studies in a Studienkolleg in Germany.
  • Students seeking admission to the Studienkolleg must apply directly to the TU München, not through uni-assist!

  • Applicants who were/are already enrolled at the TU München (including preparatory studies and exchange students).
