Applications can be submitted via the online portal

Prospective international students at FAU do not need to attend in person in order to apply and enrol. With a few exceptions, the application must be submitted via the online portal ‘campo’. FAU hopes that this is a pragmatic and uncomplicated solution for prospective international students in spite of the challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

International students are not required to attend in person for enrolment either. Depending on which degree programme you are applying for, you can enrol either by post or by e-mail. You can find out whether you need to enrol via post or by e-mail on your online enrolment application which can be downloaded from campo).

Further detailed information on online applications and enrolment is available on our website.

What do international students need to take into account in order to be issued a visa for study purposes?

In addition to a letter of admission from the university, international students require proof for the German embassies that it is absolutely necessary for them to enter Germany. Students who have been offered a place for winter semester 2020/21 will now find this proof included in their admissions letter and can download it themselves after logging into the campo portal.

International students who have already enrolled will find the confirmation required in order to be issued a visa for study purposes in their certificate of enrolment in the mein campus portal.

What form will teaching take for international students at FAU in winter semester 2020/21?

Teaching in Master’s degree programmes taught in English will be available online, in order to ensure that international students who are not actually in Germany or at the University will still be able to study at FAU. For international students in other degree programmes, the general regulations for winter semester 2020/21 will apply.
