Admission requirements

To enrol directly in the degree course, you need a general higher education entrance qualification (allgemeine Hochschulreife), a subject-specific higher education entrance qualification (fachgebundene Hochschulreife) or an entrance qualification for universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschulreife). Do you not have a school leaving certificate giving general right of entry to higher education (Abitur) or subject-specific higher education entrance qualification (Fachabitur)? Then recognised continuing education and technical college qualifications (e.g. Technician, Master Craftsperson, Business Economist, Business Administrator, Educator, etc.) in combination with a counselling interview also entitle you to a study place. If you do not have a continuing education or technical college qualification, but have completed vocational training and have professional experience, then you can start studying after successfully completing the university aptitude test.
