When will I receive an answer regarding my application for
It's hard to tell how long it will take to send
you an answer. Because usually, uni-assist checks if your
documents are complete and will then forward the paperwork to the TU
Berlin (Technical University Berlin). Here all your documents and
certificates will be examined after which a reply is sent back via
international mail. The whole process may take some time according to
the country you're from. So make sure you apply as early as possible.
How can I apply for visa?
- Please note in case you have already applied for PEESE via
uni-assist on-line portal and are waiting for an answer from TU
Berlin: You have got (or will get) a letter from uni-assist
confirming that all the necessary documents have been received and are
being forwarded to TU Berlin for the examination of your application.
Normally, with this letter you can go to your embassy and may apply
for a visa. That way you may not have a definite answer that you're
accepted, but you save time for your visa application with the German
embassy (since that process will take some time).
precedures depend on the country you come from and are quite diverse
so we can not give particular hints for visa-application.
