Notes on documents

If you have a high school diploma from a private school,
then we will assess your educational certificate according to the guidelines from the "Zentralstelle für ausländisches Bildungswesen" (Central Office for Foreign Education - ZAB) to determine if you fulfil the subject-specific requirements to study in Germany.

If the requirements are met, then the following applies:

  • Successful completion of one year of studies at an accredited university qualifies you to attend the Studienkolleg (preparatory course). You may select a preparatory course in the same subject-area as your previous academic studies.
  • Successful completion of two years of studies at an accredited university qualifies you to take up a bachelor course. You may select a subject in the same subject-area as your previous academic studies.

If you have a school leaving certificate from an Al-Azhar school, then we need the following documents:

  • your school leaving certificate,
  • proof of your enrolment at a state-run Egyptian university for a regular bachelor course (but not from Al-Azhar University).

We will have these checked by the “Zentralstelle für ausländisches Bildungswesen” (Central Office for Foreign Education – ZAB) to determine your university entrance qualification.
