Candidates with a foreign bachelor degree

If you completed your previous degree outside of Germany, you have to apply via uni-assist for the Master's program at the Freie Universität Berlin. Uni assist verifies wether your application fulfills the formal requirements of the Freie Universität Berlin. Uni-assit does not examine discipline-specific entry-requirements and does not carry out the admission procedure. The Freie Universität Berlin does only accept applications that have been made through uni-assist! You can apply for a maximum of two master degree programs.

You will need to pay uni-assist for the preliminary review. Your application will solely be reviewed when the payment entered in the bank account of uni-assist. To quicken the process, please attach the receipt of your payment to the application.

Please notice: In general uni-assist needs around 4-6 weeks to process your application, towards the end of the application period it might take longer. For that reason we urge you to submit your application as soon as possible, for it might be that otherwise you will not be notified in time about missing documents. Documents that are submitted after the application period will not be accepted!

For a request for a student visa you can submit to the german embassy the confirmation of uni-assist of the forwarding of your application to the university.

The further procedure for an application through uni-assist and the documents to be submitted is explained here. Please follow these instructions. Which documents the applicants with a foreign graduation have to submit specifically for the M.A. "Interdiciplinary Latin American Studies" is explained here (FAQ).
