Application procedure

The online application portal of the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences. Use the possibility to apply quickly and easily for the study path or training of your choice!

Students enrolled at universities in Germany are subject to the insurance duty of statutory health and social insurance. Applicants must therefore contact their responsible statutory health insurance providers in advance of enrolment in order to acquire the required proof of insurance. Applicants who are insured by private insurance providers either as members or family members require a proof of exemption from the statutory insurance. This is produced exclusively by statutory health insurance providers upon verification of the proof of private health insurance. (Proof of insurance from private providers, proof of membership period, copies of insurance cards, etc. can unfortunately not be considered.)

We will gladly provide you with a detailed handout about students’ health care insurance as well as a template of the required proof of insurance that you can then give to your insurance provider.

Do you still have questions? Please contact us at +49 6126 / 93 520. We will gladly assist you and look forward to your call!

If sections of your application are not submitted, the reason for this as well as the expected date for later submission should be indicated in the application package. Should at the time of your application your university entrance qualification be not yet available (e.g., because you are currently completing your general qualification for university admission), your application will nonetheless be gladly considered. Please refer to this in your application and attach a copy of the last certificate that you have received. Following our receipt of your package, the required proof of university entrance qualification must be submitted as soon as possible in the form of a certified copy.
