Notes on documents
If you hold a school leaving qualification from Nigeria, you will need to submit the following documents:
- Your school leaving certificate, issued by the West African Examinations Council or the National Examinations Council. Certificates issued by the schools are not sufficient.
We will assess your certificate using the specifications issued by the “Zentralstelle für ausländisches Bildungswesen” (Central Office for Foreign Education – ZAB). If you fulfil all requirements, your WASSC qualifies you for the Studienkolleg (preparatory course). You can find more information on the Studienkolleg (preparatory course) here.
Preparatory courses as well as the "Feststellungsprüfung" (university qualification exam) can only be done in German, even if the course you wish to attend is held in English.
Notes on official certification
We can verify your certificate online. Send us a non-certified copy of your certificate and your scratch card. You may also send us the information from your scratch card (card number and PIN).
