Pre-check documentation from uni-assist

The Work and Service Center for International Student Applications uni-assist e. V. is an institution for the preliminary examination of international student applications. The non-profit organization reviews application documents such as school and university transcripts for MSH and around 180 other universities in Germany and offers international prospective students a central point of contact.

Before applying, please check whether you need a Preliminary Verification Document (VPD). You must apply for this directly at uni-assist before applying to MSH. The processing time for your VPD application can take up to 6 weeks - so please allow sufficient time for your application. 

The sole application for pre-examination documentation at uni-assist does not count as an application for a degree program at MSH.

Do I have to apply to MSH with the help of uni-assist?

  • All applicants for a Bachelor's or State Exam degree program who have not acquired their university entrance qualification in the German school system in Germany or at a school with German Abitur examination regulations.
  • All applicants for a Master's program who have acquired their previous academic education (e.g. a Bachelor's degree) in a country outside Germany.
  • Applicants with International Baccalaureate Diploma.

How do I request pretest documentation?

You apply for the VPD via the online portal of uni-assist. After successful registration, you can select MSH as your university and your desired study program and submit your documents to be checked. A review of your documents is possible throughout the year.

The application via the online portal at uni-assist is not an application to MSH.
In any case, you must apply for your degree program at MSH with your VPD.

Which documents do I have to submit to uni-assist?

Guidance on the documentation required to apply for a VPD can be found here

What does the application via uni-assist cost?

With the application for the VPD you have to transfer a fee to uni-assist. The exact processing fees and further information on the transfer can be found here

Please note that your application to uni-assist cannot be processed without this transfer.

You are welcome to enclose a copy of the bank statement or a remittance slip with your application for a place at university. As soon as you have received your study place, we will offset the amount against your registration fee.

How long does the procedure take?

uni-assist usually needs about 4-6 weeks to process your application. Requests to uni-assist are usually answered after 7 working days at the earliest.

The VPD will be sent to you by uni-assist by mail.
