Application and Selection

Applying to universities can be a tedious process. Once the application period starts, you should apply online as early as possible and make sure you do not miss any of the required documents. As scary as this may sound, the application and selection process for German universities is quite simple.

Before You Start

  1. By this time, you should be sure about your target universities and their specific requirements. Sort and group the documents based on each university requirements.

  2. Make sure all the photocopies of original documents are notarized (attested).

Online Application

  1. Almost all the universities have an online portal where you can go and register.

  2. Register with your personal email address and make sure you have access to this email all the time. Also be aware that occasionally you might receive emails in the spam folder. keep checking it regularly.

  3. During the online application phase, you will be asked to:

    1. Upload the scanned copies of your documents.

    2. Fill in the candidate details

    3. Provide your recommender's email address (sometimes)

    4. Print the application and then submit the online application.

Initial Profile Evaluation

The first stage of evaluation of your application takes one among three forms.

  1. Personal Interview: This will be a telephonic or Skype interview. You will be mostly asked questions about your profile and interests mentioned on your CV or SOP. Sometimes this can be technical (e.g. TUM).

  2. Online Test: In this method, you may be evaluated based on an online test. You will receive an email with the link for the test. It will be a time-limited test with few technical questions (e.g. TU Darmstadt).

  3. You may be evaluated solely based on your online application and documents submitted by you. In this case, you just need to sit and wait for the verdict (e.g. HS Darmstadt).

Document Verification

  1. Some universities give their verdict solely based on your online application. You do not need to send any hard copies of your documents (your documents will be verified when you enroll with the university).

  2. However, most of the universities will ask you to send notarized copies of your documents. The second stage of evaluation is done once you send the physical copies. You will receive the final result in few days.

  3. You can make use of our courier offer for students MS in Germany DHL Express to send the documents.

  4. In general, the university will send you the hard copy of admission letter after confirming your admission via email.

Additional Tips

  2. Create an index page (or cover letter) that lists all the documents enclosed (follow the same order) and keep it on the top.

  3. Use a good quality paper to print the important documents (CV, SOP, LOR etc.) and do not print on both sides.

  4. Don’t staple the pages, instead use paper clips to join them.

  5. Write your name or student ID (assigned after submitting the online application) on all the important documents with a pencil.

  3. The best time to apply for a university is always as soon as the application period starts.

  4. Starting early is the key. The sooner you get your first admit, the easier will the whole process be.
