Preliminary Examination APS

The APS procedure applies to applicants from China, Vietnam and India.

Before you can apply at a German university, you must have your certificates checked for authenticity by the APS and take part in an interview or TestAS. After your documents have been successfully checked and you passed the examination, you will receive a certificate for applying for a study place in Germany.

The visa application can be submitted directly to the APS. Further information can be found on the homepage of the Academic Evaluation Centre in Beijing (APS):
