Recognition of secondary and higher education qualifications
If you would like to study in Germany, you will need a university entrance qualification (Hochschulzugangsberechtigung). You can check the DAAD database on admission requirements to find out whether the qualifications from your country of origin are eligible for enrolment, or whether you need to take further exams in order to be accepted. You can use My GUIDE to check whether your qualifications are enough for your preferred courses of study and to create your own list of courses.
No recognised secondary school qualifications? The Studienkolleg will help
Even if the qualifications from your country of origin do not meet the requirements of a German university entrance qualification, you still have an opportunity to study in Germany. You may complete a Studienkolleg (preparatory course for international students) prior to your studies. This provides language lessons and teaches specific subjects adapted to your preferred course of study. The course normally lasts for one year. If you pass the assessment test, you will receive a subject-related university entrance qualification. You will find more information on the Studienkolleg website in Germany.
