Application Documents

The following documents must be submitted to uni-assist for an application:

  1. Application form (is automatically generated at the end of the online application in the uni-assist portal.) Please be aware, that the spelling on the application must correspond to the spelling in your passport.
  2. Personal data sheet (short CV).
  3. Passport copy (only the page with the name and photo) or ID Card.
  4. Scan from the original certificate or from the Authenticated copy of the original as well as Scan from the sworn translation (German or English) of the following documents:
    1. High School certificate with subject and grade summary, if applicable: Certificate of university entrance examination.
    2. If you have already studied in your home country or at other universities, please submit the subject and grade summary of all years, and if available: the graduation certificate.
    3. If a degree program has already been completed: Overview of subjects and grades of all years of study and the final degree certificate.
    4. Proof of sufficient German language skills (except for English-taught master's programs).
  5. Please note that for certain degree programs, further special documents (e.g. application for aptitude assessment, proof of foreign language skills, motivation letter, internships) must be submitted. Please familiarise yourself prior to applying by reading the corresponding pages in TU Dresden’s Student Information System.
  6. Applicants for higher semesters have to submit a "Moduldescription" (German or English) as well as a certificate of recognition for the desired course of study.
  7. For applications for master's programs, if the first university degree is not present:
    1. Certificate (with original signature or authenticated copy) regarding the estimated end of studies and confirmation that at least 80% of the bachelor's degree program has been completed, incl. the current average grade (for a 4-year degree – 7 completed semesters, for a 3-year degree – 5 completed semesters).
  8. Chinese, Vietnamese, and Indian applicants have to submit the original certificate of the Academic Evaluation Centre at the German embassy (APS – Akademische Prüfstelle).
  9. Students who are already enrolled in a German university have to submit an additional application form (Nebenhörer).
  10. If you want to change from another German university to TU Dresden, you will need a Transcript of records and an enrolment certificate.

Please note: The university also recommends that you bring a set of your certified application documents with you to Germany. You may need these for further purposes. Certification of foreign-language documents requires a lot of effort and is very time-consuming in Germany.

Furthermore, for the NES Master's program, the university requires (these documents should also be uploaded at uni-assist.):

  1. Letter of Motivation (max. 1 page with font size 11).
  2. Certificate/documents proving proficiency in English (except for native speakers).
  3. Documents proving expertise in (one subject may be missing):
    1. Advanced Mathematics.
    2. Electro-magnetic Fields.
    3. Analog and Digital Circuit Design.
    4. Systems Theory.
    5. Operation and Construction of Basic Electron Devices.
    6. Object-Oriented Programming.
