        • If you already passed the APS certification procedure and afterwards continued your studies and/or obtained an academic degree in your home country, the following applies: further periods of study or the achievement of an academic degree in your home country may give you access to a wider range of study programs and might be crucial to get access to your desired study program at TU Berlin. In this case, you have to have both the further periods of study and your academic degree documents re-certified by the APS. Please upload the re-certification document onto your TU account (tuPORT) AND, in addition to this, submit the original document (hard copy) directly to the Office of Student Affairs – Graduate Admissions Department, either in person or by post.
