Please bear in mind that the Studienkolleg requires the following documents: (1) a certified copy of your Higher Education Entry Qualification, (2) a list of all subject grades, (3) a certificate of German language proficiency and (4) a CV documenting your education history. All photocopies must be authenticated by German authorities. Please note that the recognition of your qualifications will take at least two weeks. Requests for recognition of Higher Education Entry Qualification will have to reach the „Studienkolleg Konstanz“ by 1 May for courses starting in the winter semester or by 1 November for the courses starting in the summer semester.
If the Studienkolleg decides that your current qualification does not prepare you sufficiently for studying your chosen degree program, you will be invited to attend a one-year-long preparatory course at the Studienkolleg. The results from your final examinations at the end of this course will determine whether you can be admitted to study at a University of Applied Science in the state of Baden-Württemberg. For more please refer to Bewerbung.
