Master’s Admissions Office
University of Cologne
Document verification - verification note
Students who are acquiring/acquired a Bachelor's degree at another university in Germany are/were admitted to the Master's programme with proviso. These external students must submit their documents to the Master's Admissions Office for verification of the documents submitted only as copies in the KLIPS application. They will then receive a verification note which will lead to the lifting of the re-registration block in the Student Administration Office (provided that all other enrolment-relevant documents have been submitted).
As it is not possible to present the documents in person at the Master's Admissions Office at the moment, please send us a certified copy of the required documents by 15 July 2021 and, if you wish to have them returned, a stamped and addressed return envelope. Otherwise, the conditional admission cannot be lifted.
Students who enroll at the International Office do not have to hand in their papers at the Master’s admissions Office but at the International Office.
