Application Process

Step 1. Admissions check for foreign applicants (Optional)

For international applicants, we offer free assessment of their academic certificates to verify whether they meet the admission requirements or not. Please contact our Student Advisors for detailed advice on the recognition of your academic certificates.  

Step 2. Apply online. There is no application fee. 

We will subsequently check your documents and then invite you to a personal interview, either on campus or via Skype, in order to discuss your personal goals, objectives and your motivation. 

If the application procedure is successful, Macromedia University shall send you the Letter of Offer and the necessary enrolment form. Applicants should sign and return this form within 14 days after reception. When we have received the filled and signed enrolment form, we shall send to you a Confirmation of Admission.

Blocked Bank Account  
Applicants from outside the European Union need to transfer 50% of the first semesters’ payments as well as the registration fee prior to receiving the Confirmation of Admission and the Welcome Letter. These documents are necessary to start your visa process. Please note that in most cases, you will need to provide financial security in the form of a German Blocked Account with around 10,236 € EUR to complete your visa application. Many students also use Fintiba for this purpose. 

More information is available on the website of the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service). Please note that only your closest German embassy or consulate will provide the lawfully correct and current information and details.

Applicants from outside the European Union need to provide a valid residence permit before the start of their programme. For further information about visa and immigration regulations for Germany, please contact your closest German embassy or consulate.
