Terms of Admission

Prerequisites for the admission to any course of study in Germany requires a university entrance qualification. This qualification must be equivalent to a university entrance qualification obtained in Germany (i.e. a secondary school diploma, e.g. Abitur or equivalent).

Please be aware that the definition of the university entrance qualification (secondary school diploma, e.g. Abitur or equivalent) can vary from country to country. This means that in certain cases, one or two years of educational experience at a university in your home country, a one-year term at a German "Studienkolleg" or the fulfilment of other prerequisites (e.g. APS) may be mandatory prior to the admission. Please inquire about your requirements for admission long before the deadline!
