Qualification Statement (equals the evidence of admission)
What is the qualification statement?
The qualification statement is a special entrance qualification. It confirms that the subject-specific admission requirements including those for the right to direct admission to the intended studies are fulfilled at a university of the country the general university entrance qualification was obtained.
We accept the template if it is filled out and stamped by an university and if it is legalized according to the regulations of the country issuing all other original documents!
More information about the form of legalization is available here.
(In countries where original documents must be legalized, we recommend to solely use this document as a template.)
Who needs to submit the qualification statement?
All applicants who do not possess the citizenship of a member state of the EU/EEA or have a status equivalency.
Who is issuing the qualification statement?
The qualification statement needs to be issued from a recognized/ accredited university from the country where the general university entrance qualification was received. It has to be issued by the institution/office responsible for admission to the university. The statement needs to be signed and stamped with the official university's seal/stamp.
We only accept the qualification statement if the University itself offers the study programme for which the document is issued.
for bachelor- or diploma programmes: issued by an university in which the secundary school leaving certficate or a bachelor's degree of at least 3 years was obtained
for master's programmes: issued by an university in which the bachelor's degree or diploma degree was obtained
for doctorate programmes: issued by an university in which the master's degree or diploma degree was obtained
We do not accept a qualification statement that is for example issued by the Ministry of Education.
Which information must be indicated in the qualification statement?
The evidence of special university entrance qualification must contain the following information:
- Your full name
