FAQ’s - What you need to know about studying in Germany
I want to apply for admission to a bachelor’s program. What do I have to do?
The first thing to do is to find out whether your university entrance qualification is recognized in Germany. The DAAD admission database can help you with this. You can obtain more specific information about other countries and certificates at Anabin. This database contains information on how foreign secondary school-leaving certificates are evaluated. It provides all relevant information, e.g. whether your certificate will be recognized and whether you will need to meet further requirements. The final decision is always made by the university, to which you apply. Therefore, we recommend asking the International Office at the University of your choice whether you meet all the requirements.
