Via uni-assist

All applicants who acquired their university entrance qualification outside the Federal Republic of Germany apply via uni-assist, the Service Centre for International Student Applications. Uni-assist evaluates the study qualifications for the chosen degree programme on behalf of the TH Lübeck.

The Application Procedure[]

Application processing usually takes about 4 to 6 weeks after receipt of application and payment. Uni-assist will inform you of the result of the examination in the form of a letter and an e-mail.

If you meet the admission requirements, uni-assist will send your application documents to TH Lübeck.

  • If you apply for a course of study with restricted admission, you will be included in the selection process, which will take place approx. 4 weeks after the application deadline after which you will then receive written notification.
  • If you apply for an admission-free degree programme, we will send you the admission documents by post and, if necessary, by e-mail approx. 2 to 3 weeks after uni-assist has sent them to us.
