Advisory Office for Master's Application and Admission

The  Advisory Office for Master's Application and Admission is your first point of contact for any questions relating to an application for a consecutive master’s degree program with the exception of teaching degree programs at the University of Potsdam. If you are interested in a continuing education master’s program or a degree program offered in cooperation with another institution, you will find the contact information of the competent employees here. Prospective students interested in a teaching-related master’s degree program who did not obtain their first degree at the University of Potsdam should contact the Center for Teacher Training and Education Research (ZeLB); graduates of the University of Potsdam should contact the Office of Student Affairs.

What kinds of questions can I address to the Advisory Office for Master's Application and Admission?

1. Application for admission to a master’s degree program via the University of Potsdam’s admission and enrollment portal and uni-assist e.V.

This includes the following topics:

  • application deadlines
  • required documentation
  • admission process

You can find detailed information on our application process via uni-assist e.V. on this page and our faq page.

2. Preliminary review documentation (VPD) by uni-assist e.V.

Please note that we do not provide a preliminary assessment of your academic and language aptitude.

What questions should I address elsewhere?

  1. Inquiries on the processing status of your application documents cannot be answered by us. You can check the current processing status of your documents in the admission and enrollment portal and/or in your user account at uni-assist e.V..
  2. Questions regarding enrollment, re-registration, and the application to begin studies in a master’s degree program should be addressed to the Office of Student Affairs.
