Evaluation fee for international students

Information on evaluation fee

The University of Trier charges an evaluation fee of 70 Euro if the admissions office has to evaluate international certificates and diplomas. The application will only be processed when the fee has been verifiably transferred to the university's account and all required documents have been submitted.

We do not cooperate with Uni Assist. Therefore sending a Uni Assist report does not exempt you from paying the evaluation fee.

The evaluation fee is charged only once, even if you apply for more than one programme.

The following groups of applicants are exempt from the evaluation fee

  • Scholarship holders who receive their scholarship from a German or international institution, e.g. DMD, Fulbright Commission
  • Non degree-seeking applicants who wish to study at Trier University for a limited period of time in the framework of a bi- or multilateral exchange program, e.g. within the ERASMUS program, the ISEP prograrn or bilateral exchange agreements
  • PhD Candidates who wish to enroll as PhD students and hold a letter of acceptance as PhD candidale issued by a professor of Trier University
  • Applicants who have been previously enrolled at Trier University and wish to continue their studies in the same subject
  • Applicants enrolled at a German higher education institution wishing to continue their studies in the same subject at the University of Trier and having  a minimurn of 80 credit points of a Bachelor program
  • Applicants whose foreign certificates have already been validated by one of the Gerrnan federal states' validation offices (not by other Universities, not Uni Assist!)
