What is a Declaration of Academic History (Tätigkeitsnachweis)?

A Declaration of Academic History confirms whether or not you have been enrolled at another university during a specific period. If you have not engaged in any academic study during the stated period you are simply required to provide written confirmation (signed and dated by you) that you were not enrolled at any university during that period.

If you were enrolled at a university during the stated period you are required to submit proof of disenrollment by the time you enrol at HFT Stuttgart at the latest.

Where do I get a certificate of health insurance?

You will need to request a certificate of health insurance from your health insurance provider. Applicants who hold private health insurance are required to submit an exemption issued by a public health insurance provider.

When will I receive my registration documents?

Your registration documents will be sent to you by post and will include your student card and temporary account details which enable you to print out your enrolment certificate. Students starting their programme in the summer semester will receive their documents in early March. Students starting their programme in the winter semester will receive their documents in early September.

What do I need to do if I decide to give up my place before lectures begin?

If you have already paid your fees for the first semester please provide your bank details so that a refund can be arranged. If your student card has already been printed your fees will not be refunded.

Prep Week generally takes place in the first week in March (programmes starting in the summer semester) and the first week in October (programmes starting in the winter semester).
