Master Applicants with non-EU undergraduate degrees

If you wish to apply to one of our master's programmes and you have obtained an undergraduate degree from a university or college outside the European Union, you will have to follow a certain process which may require some patience on your side.

1. Study advisory service: Before starting your application process you may contact our study advisor, Ms. Natalie Stellmacher, to inquire whether your academic background qualifies for your chosen Master's programme.

2. UNI-ASSIST application: You are required to start the application process initially via Uni-Assist unless you already have a Test Report which includes information that you are eligible to apply for a Master's programme at a German university or university of applied sciences. 

  • Deadline for winter term applications:
    - PEET: June 30th 2022
    - all other master's programmes: July 15th 2022!

3. UNI-ASSIST approved: If your application is approved by Uni-Assist, your documents will be forwarded automatically to us. 

  • Once your documents are forwarded to us, you will receive a confirmation by Uni-Assist.
    Furthermore, you will also be contacted by the applicant management (Ms. Sonja Puncken-Kassen) 

4. Application procedure at Hochschule Bremerhaven: If all required documents are complete the respective study committee will start the evaluation process, which may take a while - therefore we are asking for your patience in this regard.

5. Admission offer or rejection: these will be issued continuously after the evaluation process has been completed and via e-mail.

  • If admission is offered: further information on how to enroll is provided
  • If admission is denied: you may be able to appeal that decision by forwarding proof of further
    qualifications (such as proof of sufficient work experience in the required field...etc.)

6. Enrollment:

  • can be done via e-mail.
  • upon arrival all relevant documents including the visa have to be presented or forwarded by postal service certified copy (may be individually determined)
  • after documents have been submitted and completed, semester documents will be issued and forwarded via postal service to your address in Germany.
