Applicants who come from a member state of the EU/EEA must also register with their health insurance company and inform them there. Foreign applicants from non-EU member states must register with a German health insurance fund, take out insurance there and inform the health insurance fund that they wish to study at Ansbach University of Applied Sciences.
The above-mentioned notification must also be made if you have been de-registered from Ansbach University of Applied Sciences and re-register for the next semester, e.g. in a different course of study.
You can find the information sheet on health insurance here (german).

If you have acquired a foreign higher education entrance qualification (e.g. certificates, diplomas), you must have it recognised. The assessment - Vorprüfungsdokumentation (VPD) - is carried out for us by uni-assist e.V. The VPD does not replace an application to the university.
The VPD ist possible all year around. Please note that uni-assist e.V. usually needs 4-6 weeks to process your documents - therefore, please submit your documents early.
The university decides whether your certificate of education entitles you to study the desired degree programme or whether you have to take an assessment test.
Applicants whose educational certificates allow direct access to higher education must prove that they have passed a German language examination in order to be immaticulated (German-language degree programmes).
Only the following German examinations are recognised:
Proof of having passed the German language examination must be uploaded as part of the application. Please refer to the online application portal for the deadlines.
There are different requirements for foreign language degree programmes.
If applicable, you will have to take the examination to determine the suitability of foreign applicants to study at universities in the Federal Republic of Germany before you start your studies.
Preparation for the assessment test is carried out on
Studienkolleg bei den Hochschulen
des Freistaates Bayern
Tel: 09561 4270610
We will let you know whether you need to attend the Studienkolleg after we have checked your application documents.
After passing the assessment test, admission at a Bavarian university of applied sciences is possible. However, it depends on the result of the selection procedure.
Applicants from the People's Republic of China (APS China), Vietnam (APS Vietnam) and India (APS India) need an APS certificate. It must be submitted to the university during the application procedure.
In the open-admission degree programmes, places are available in all higher semesters that are open for applications. For the winter semester, places are therefore generally available in the 3rd, 5th and 7th semesters, and in the 2nd, 4th and 6th semesters for the summer semester.
For degree programmes with restricted admission, the number of study places depends on capacity.
For all application options for the coming semester, please refer to our online application portal.
You can only apply for a higher semester if you have already studied in another degree programme or at another university and have examination credits (ECTS points) for the desired degree programme.
