APPLICATION PROCESS

 

- How to proceed - 

 

Below you will find a detailed explaination on how to apply.

Please use only this way to apply - DO NOT SEND ANY DOCUMENTS TO THE IMES OFFICE DIRECTLY. Documents and/or applications submitted through another way will not be considered.

 

I. Application with an International Degree

 

Prospective students with an international degree need to apply via uni-assist for a VPD document (''Vorprüfungsdokumentation''). If you apply with a degree from China, India, or Vietnam, please follow the information of the International Office regarding the APS certificate. The relevant degree is your Bachelor's degree (or an equivalent degree obtained at an university or technical university) - not the school leaving certificate (or an equivalent degree of qualification for access to German universities)!

For that, you need to go to ''My Assist'', choose ''Universität zu Köln – VPD'', and follow the instructions. Do not worry, IMES does not appear namely, the VPD document is for all subjects (except for Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences), which includes IMES.

 

For the subsequent application see the Central Application Portal below:

Prospective students with a German degree need only apply via Klips 2.0.
