Notes on documents
If you have a high school diploma from a private school, please refer to the information under international qualifications.
If your High School Diploma does not conform to the US curriculum, 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 accreditated 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 accreditated university qualifies you to take up a bachelor’s degree programme. You may select a subject in the same subject-area as your previous academic studies.
