​All applicants with degrees from China and Vietnam have to submit an APS certificate as part of their application documents.

The academic test centre (Akademische Prüfstelle, APS) is a service centre that reviews and verifies certificates from China and Vietnam. The APS also checks whether or not an applicant fulfils the requirements to study in Germany and interviews them.

The APS procedure can take several months. Therefore, start the process as early as possible to ensure you have your APS certificate when applying to Hochschule Düsseldorf.

Important information for applicants with Chinese degrees:

In case you apply with a preliminary APS certificate, you need to hand in the updated and final APS with your enrolment papers. Preliminary means, that your APS certificate does not include the evaluation of your completed university degree.
If, in that case, you do not hand in an updated APS certificate with your enrolment papers, you cannot be enrolled at Hochschule Düsseldorf and start your study programme, even if you fulfil all other requirements!
