International Applicants

ATTENTION:

The application procedure for the summer semester 2024 has ended. The application process for the winter semester 2024/25 is expected to start in April 2024.

Some important changes are expected for the application procedure for the winter semester 2024/2025. On the one hand, these changes affect the application procedure in general. On the other hand, the admission requirements and/or application deadlines will change for some degree programs.

We will publish these changes on this website as soon as possible. Therefore, please visit the website regularly.

 

On this page, you will find general requirements and instructions regarding the application process for international applicants. Program-specific information, such as special qualification requirements, application deadlines, etc., can be found in the details for each program under the link "Study Offer": https://www.ku.de/en/study-offer

 

In general, the application process is conducted digitally through the KU's own application portal.

ATTENTION: A different application procedure applies for the following degree programmes:

• The Bachelor's degree program "Data Science"

• The Master's degree program "Business & Psychology"

For these programs, the following groups should apply directly through www.uni-assist.de: All international applicants who obtained their first university entrance qualification (in the case of "Data Science") or their so-called "Master's entrance qualification" (in the case of "Business & Psychology") outside the EU.

These applicants should submit their application exclusively through uni-assist.de. Neither registration nor an additional application in the KU portal is necessary. On the contrary, they would cause problems in the application processing. After a successful review, uni-assist will directly provide us with their application documents.

 

Before you start the application process, including through uni-assist.de, please make sure to read the additional information on this page, especially regarding the German language requirements and the university entrance qualification.

 

We look forward to receiving your application!

How to Apply?

When applying through the KU's own application portal, the process is as follows:

• Please register first in our application portal bewerbung.ku.de. Registration is possible throughout the year. Register only once and remember your username and self-chosen password.

• Unlike registration, application is not possible throughout the year but only within the application period for the respective program. The program appears only during this period in the selection menu in the application portal!

• From the selection menu, choose the desired degree (e.g., Bachelor Uni, Magister, or Master Uni), then the desired program, and – if necessary – a specialization or specific combination of subjects.

• Answer all questions about your educational background, language skills, relevant work experience, etc., truthfully and completely. Upload the relevant documents in the upload fields. Depending on the program, you may also be asked for information about relevant internships, scholarships, etc. Please upload the corresponding documents in the upload area for all the information you provide, even if they are not mandatory fields!

• Once you have provided all the information and uploaded all required documents, you can submit your application. Further communication will typically take place through the application portal. Here, you will also find – once we have processed your application – your admission or rejection letter.

 

What Documents Do I Need for the Application?

This varies depending on the degree and program. A general list – categorized by degree – can be found below, and program-specific documents can be found either in the info-PDFs at the top of the page or in the corresponding program descriptions on our “Study Offer” page:

Required documents for application & Application deadline

For applications to the preparatory college (Studienkolleg) and undergraduate programs (Bachelor or Magister)

  • Originals or officially certified copies of your educational qualification certificates starting with your highest school-leaving qualification
  • Translation of your educational certificates into German, English or French by a court-certified translator, including proof of the respective evaluation/grading systems with the required minimum passing grade as well as the highest possible grade.
  • APS certificate of the Academic Evaluation Center for applicants from China, India, Mongolia and Vietnam
  • Proof of your German language proficiency (usually DSH level 2 or test DAF 4-4-4-4) (can be submitted by the beginning of the semester)
  • Proof of German language proficiency on level A1/A2, if you want to participate in our preparatory intensive German course prior to your studies (participation is not possible for Master's degree programs with restricted admission)
  • Résumé in table form
  • Copy of identity card/passport

When applying for a Master’s degree program, the following documents in addition

  • Original or officially certified copy of the Bachelor’s degree
  • Original or officially certified copy of the transcript listing names of the individual modules taken in all Bachelor’s semesters
  • Official proof of passing grade of the Bachelor’s degree program
  • Official proof of the evaluation/grading system at your university stating required minimum passing grade as well as the highest possible grade

Applicants for a doctoral degree are asked to submit the following documents in addition

  • Written confirmation of supervision of your doctoral project by a KU professor
  • Confirmation of the doctoral committee that the doctoral project has been accepted
  • If you do not yet have the required German language skills, a so-called DSH admission may be granted with the possibility to attend the German intensive course (the course starts only in the winter semester). A check of your documents will show whether this is possible. In order to apply, you must prove German language proficiency at least at level A2. If the doctoral project is written in another language, proof of German language proficiency is not required. Instead, you will need proof of knowledge of the language in which the doctoral project will be written. Furthermore, you require a written confirmation issued by your doctoral supervisor that the doctoral project can be completed in the chosen language.

Application deadline

For the preparatory college, applications for the winter semester are accepted from April to July 15, and for the summer semester, from December to January 15.
