Entry Requirements

In order to study at a German university, a prospective student must provide a Hochschulzugangsberechtigung (university admission qualification). German applicants acquire an Abitur (General Qualification for University Entrance certificate), which allows them to apply for a spot at a university. International applicants must determine if their secondary school graduation is equivalent to the German Abitur prior to applying to a university.

Students who meet the application requirements may otherwise improve their chance of admission depending on which study programme they apply for or by passing the Test for Academic Studies (TestAS).

For the bachelor programme: English B2 and another foreign language A2
