How can a portfolio help you?

Have you been studying in your home country, but you have not been able to bring original proofs such as a certificate, a student ID or a written confirmation of a teacher to Germany?

In this case you need a plausible presentation of your previous educational path. This is where we offer help: Together with you we create a portfolio for your educational path. Only then will the further review be carried out by uni-assist or a Studienkolleg.

At the same time, the portfolio can be used in consultations to explain the own educational biography and to avoid misunderstandings.

Or are you looking for a job immediately? Here, too, the detailed presentation of your previous education and professional experience can help with applications.


Please note: A German language level A2 / B1 or English B2 is required.

How do we create the portfolio?

In two detailed conversations we will talk about your academic and professional qualifications. In doing so we will compile all important information about your previous educational pathway, prepare a CV and a competence assessment and provide information on possible recognition.

The creation of the portfolio is free of charge for you.


What we can't do:

We advise and support you. However, the decision whether or not to be admitted to a study program is not our responsibility.
