Admission process Medicine and Dentistry (Non-EU applicants)

Application and Admission

The places for the degree programs Medicine and Dentistry at the Goethe University, will be allocated to non-EU applicants through their achieved grade in the university entrance qualification and the result of their ‘Test for Academic Studies’ (TestAS) in the Mathematics, Computer Science and Natural Sciences Module. The TestAS must be taken in German and the results must be handed in before the respective deadline.

The medicine and dentistry programs only start in winter semester. The next application deadline for non-EU-applicants for the winter term 2021/2022 will presumably be 15th July 2021. The application process will go through www.uni-assist.de.

You are able to take the TestAS worldwide, including Germany, at numerous locations. The participation of the TestAS is not free of charge. For further information on the test centers in Germany or in other countries, or the current test dates, you can follow this link: www.testas.de. You can then upload the results of your completed TestAS to your online application in uni-assist; you do not need to send your TestAS certificate via mail to uni-assist in Berlin along with your other documents.

Weighting/Importance of grades for the application: Please note that your university entrance qualification grade counts as 51% of the final selection process, the result of the TestAS Core Test counts 19%, and the result of the Mathematics, Computer Science and Natural Sciences Module is 30%. Further information can be found in the statute: Auswahlsatzung. If you do not take the TestAS, it will count as 5.0 and be 49% of your entire application.

Finally, please note that by the time of your application, you already need to have proven your German language skills on a DSH-3 level or equivalent. Further information on the language skills needed, can be found here

Goethe University is offering an additional TestAS date for its applicants to Medicine or Dentistry.

The additional TestAS is expected to take place on the Westend Campus in Frankfurt in July 2021. Presumably in the beginning of June, you can register for the test at testas@uni-frankfurt.de with your uni-assist application number.

Once your details have been processed, you will get a registration link for the additional TestAS. The link will take you to the TestAS portal, where you will need to register and pay the TestAS fee. Participants will receive an E-Mail as soon as the results are available.
