All documents must be provided either in German or in English – certified translations only.



As a foreign applicant you have to apply with uni-assist with all mandatory documents.
At the uni-assist online portal you find us under the following name: Bernburg/Dessau/Köthen, Hochschule Anhalt.

As an applicant with a first degree acquired in Germany you can apply at our University's webpage SSC-Portal (without uni-assist) with all mandatory documents as well.

After your application, uni-assist will check your documents and inform Anhalt University of Applied Sciences. Then, you get an email from us and a new login for our registration system of Anhalt University where you can check your status of application and download the admission letter. We will always inform you by email when your status has changed.


  • In the registration portal you can switch the language to German and download a German version of the admission letter.
  • If you additionally need the original admission letter by mail (airmail), you have to contact us.
  • The admission letter is only valid for the next semester (we have changed this!). That means, if you cannot finish your visa process in time, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can help you.
  • For data protection reasons we are obliged to delete the data of the previous application of one semester. Please contact us again for a new application/registration at our university for the next semester, so that we have your data for the new semester as well.
  • Currently there are no tuition fees for the master's degree program in Biomedical Engineering – you only have to pay a semester contribution of about €80 for each semester.
