The photo on the CAU Card

The CAU Card is an official document issued by Kiel University. The card has your photo on it to safeguard its functions.

It is very important that you provide us with a recent and good quality passport photo for the card, on which you can be clearly recognised.

Unsuitable photos will restrict the card's acceptance at various places. Replacing an unsuitable picture later can only be done by replacing the card.

  Note

Please note:

Providing a photo is a necessary requirement for issuing the student ID!


If you have any questions on uploading or the further processing of your photos, or issuing and using your student ID, please make sure you contact:

Please note, that photos uploaded after official submission period will be processed only on availability of the completed application form.

The application form can be downloaded here.

Production of CAU cards requested in this way will start most probably by mid of July.
