Admissions Criteria

If you wish to study at a German university, your highest qualification has to be recognized here in Germany. It is therefore necessary to ascertain whether this qualification is equivalent to a German qualification that entitles you to complete a master’s or other degree course at a German university. For our international master’s degree courses, we would look at your most recent bachelor’s degree. We will examine your documents during the enrollment process. We ask that you submit a résumé and an officially attested copy of your highest qualification alongside your registration form.
