In order to study in Germany, you need a recognised school-leaving certificate. On this page you will find information on recognition and attending the Studienkolleg.
International applicants are required to present a high school certificate equivalent to the German Abitur. Unfortunately, not all foreign high school qualifications are automatically recognised as equivalent to the Abitur. Please refer to the database anabin for an overview.
You are required to apply before the given deadline by submitting all the necessary documents via uni-assist for the specific course of study you wish to pursue and the Studienkolleg you wish to attend. If your application meets the requirements, you can expect an invitation from the university to sit the entrance examination for the Studienkolleg, in May for the summer semester and in September for the winter semester. Please note that there are usually more applications than places at the Studienkolleg. Candidates for Studienkollegs are therefore selected based on the results in the entrance exam.
