Foreign Certificates

There are special requirements for applicants who hold a foreign university entrance qualification or have completed their first degree program qualifying for a profession abroad. In addition to the standard application documents, these applicants may have to present additional proof with regard to their graduation certificates and their German proficiency.

Evaluation of Certificates

For specific degree programs, applicants holding a foreign university entrance qualification must have uni-assist review and rate their certificates before applying. This also applies to applicants with German citizenship who have completed a degree program abroad. Please review the section on certificate evaluation via uni-assist.

Note: Citizens of the People's Republic of China, Mongolia, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam are asked to familiarize themselves with the special regulations for applicants from these countries.

Proof of German Proficiency

Applicants who hold a foreign university entrance qualification and do not have German citizenship must present proof of German proficiency with a certificate accepted by the Film University. Please review the information on accepted certificates before applying.
