Printing out Official Documents
Your enrolment certificate serves as proof that you are enrolled as a student at a university. You can submit it to any institution (your health insurance provider, pension insurance agency, family benefits office, etc.) that requires such proof. Your enrolment certificate includes all relevant information about your studies in the current semester. You should print it out each semester. You should also print out a new copy of this document each time your status changes, e.g. when you take a leave of absence or change degree programmes or subjects.
On page 2 of the document, you will find a certificate for presentation to Deutsche Bahn AG as proof of your eligibility for a students’ monthly transport pass. If you are enrolled in a programme at the University of Würzburg, you are eligible for a Deutsche Bahn students’ monthly transport pass for your commute between your home and university. An eligibility card (Berechtigungskarte) serves as evidence of your eligibility. You will not have to have your eligibility card stamped by us - just staple this certificate to it.
Your BAföG agency will accept this document in lieu of form 2 ‘Bescheinigung nach § 9 BAföG über den Besuch einer Ausbildungsstätte’.
This document lists all semesters you have spent studying at the University of Würzburg as well as other information that was previously contained in the master data sheet (number of semesters on leave of absence, total number of university semesters, the standard length of your programme(s) as well as the date of your first enrolment and, if applicable, the date of disenrolment). It is an alternative to your enrolment certificates, which provide the respective information separately for each semester. If you intend to transfer to another university, you can submit this document to your new university in lieu of a disenrolment certificate and as proof of previous periods of study.
This document lists all semester fees you have paid when you first enrolled in a programme at the University of Würzburg and each time you re-enrolled to continue your studies. You can attach it to your tax return.
