Feststellungsprüfung (university qualification exam)

Final exam of the Studienkolleg (preparatory course).

Short for: "Prüfung zur Feststellung der Eignung internationaler Studienbewerber für die Aufnahme eines Studiums an Hochschulen in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland" (Exam to assess the qualification of international student applicants for entering studies at universities in the Federal Republic of Germany)

If you pass this exam, you may apply to a bachelor course (or a comparable undergraduate course of study) in your subject area ("Fachrichtung"). In some Studienkollegs, you may take the "Feststellungsprüfung" without having attended the Studienkolleg ("externe Feststellungsprüfung"). In that scenario, you prepare for the exam yourself.
