Admission requirements

The requirement for admission to the Bachelor's degree course is a general higher education entrance qualification (allgemeine Hochschulreife), subject-specific higher education entrance qualification (fachgebundene Hochschulreife) or entrance qualification for universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschulreife) (the relevant equivalence regulations may be applicable) and completed vocational training as a nurse, preventive health-focused nurse, geriatric nurse or paediatric nurse. Further details are specified in the admission regulations. Applicants without an entrance qualification for universities of applied sciences also need at least three years of professional experience in the relevant area.
