Informations concerning the acceptance of foreign academic diplomas by the supervising scientist

A thesis at the CharitéUniversitätsmedizin Berlin requires an accepted academic diploma of a master level. Since your candidate has not studied in Germany you need to verify the credentials with the

Sekretariat der ständigen Konferenz der Kultusminister der Länder in der BRD Zentralstelle für ausländisches Bildungswesen

Graurheindorfer Str. 157 in 53117 Bonn


Please send in the complete diplomas (copies of original documents of all academic diplomas including report cards listing the individual subjects and grades as well as copies of certified translations into German or English). The equivalence of the submitted  diplomas to those German diplomas required for a thesis completion needs to be stated in writing by the above institution.

Incomplete submission of relevant materials delays the process significantly  and distracts the  administrators at the „Sekretariat“. Also, requests from individuals are not accepted. Use your institutional address.

The administrators, Mrs. Veit 0228/501-352, Mrs. Boehm oder Mrs. Hartwig 0228/501-265 assign reference numbers to incoming requests and the name of the candidate. If additional inquiries are necessary, please make sure to use the reference number and call Mrs. Veit, Mrs.Boehm or Mrs. Hartwig prior to the inquiry in order for them to pull the respective file.

If inquiries concern candidates from the Arabic States, Iran or Afghanistan (where the verification process may take longer) a call to the office head 0228/501-265 may prioritize the process if appropriate reasons are submitted.

If you have received a positive verification your candidate may proceed to registration at the Charité thesis office.
