Requesting a Preliminary Review (VPD) from uni-assist

Uni-assist is an external partner who processes applications for admission from international applicants for the University of Würzburg. Please find out whether you  will need to submit a preliminary review documentation (Vorprüfungsdokumentation, VPD) to the University of Würzburg along with your application for admission. Remember that you will have to request the VPD from uni-assist BEFORE you submit your application for admission to the University of Würzburg. 

Please request your VPD from uni-assist as early as possible and at least 6 weeks before the end of the application deadline at the JMU. You will have to upload it to the WueStudy portal when you apply for admission or, respectively, will have to send it to the University of Würzburg along with your other application documents.

You can request a VPD from uni-assist at any time during the year, it is valid for one year!
