Studies with degree

You would like to study at Bergische Universität Wuppertal and obtain a degree.

If you have acquired your eligibility (e.g. Lise Diplomasi, Baccalaureat, Attestat) to study at Bergische Universität abroad, i.e. if you do not have a German university entrance qualification (German Abitur, German university degree, etc.), apply to study/German language course at Bergische Universität via the Working and service point for international student applications "uni-assist" (detailed application information can be found in the Download Center).  

Certificates must be uploaded via the uni-assist application portal along with all required documents as officially certified copies (amtlich beglaubigte Kopien). If you do not yet have a certified copy, you have the option of enclosing your certified copy with your enrolment documents at the latest when you enrol at the university or of presenting the original on site. Documents that are not in German or English must be uploaded in addition to the original as a certified translation (English or German).

IMPORTANT: This does not apply to the cases mentioned in the paragraph "Exceptions to the uni-assist application procedure".

If you have a German Abitur but completed your Bachelor's degree abroad, you must also apply for a Master's degree programme via uni-assist.

Application deadlines
For the summer semester: 15.11.-15.01.
For the winter semester: 15.05.-15.07.       

Please note that there are other deadlines and procedures for some degree programmes!

Prospective students who would like to apply for the preparatory German course in combination with a degree programme that is only offered in the winter semester for the first subject-related semester must apply to uni-assist for the summer semester 2023 for a higher subject-related semester in order to have their university entrance qualification checked.


Exceptions to the uni-assist application procedure:

  • Applications for the Bachelor's degree programme in Industrial Design and for the Master's degree programmes in Architecture, Strategic Product and Innovation Development, and Public Interest Design.
  • Application as a university transfer student in the same Bachelor's degree programme
  • Application as a scholarship holder from a German organisation for a maximum of two semesters without a degree

Detailed application information and the application for admission to the degree programme can be found in the "Download Center".


International applicants who have already completed a Bachelor's degree in Germany and are interested in a Master's degree programme should apply directly to the relevant Master's examination board and then to the International Student Secretariat at Bergische Universität. You can find the application for admission to the degree programme in the Download Center.
