Get to know the requirements

To be able to study at a German higher education institution, you need a so-called university entrance qualification (Hochschulzugangsberechtigung, HZB). This is usually your high school diploma. If this is not sufficient to apply to an undergraduate programme in Germany, you must first attend a Studienkolleg or take the "Feststellungsprüfung" (university qualification exam).
