2 paths to University in Germany
To enter a German University for a Bachelors program you must have a secondary education level that is equivaltent to a German Abitur (secondary school qualification)
The following are examples of international secondary school qualifications that are equivalent to the German Abitur:
- A levels (with 3 A levels and 1 AS level),
- IB - with a minimum of 24 points
- West African high school certificate and others from around the world
Students with these qualifications have direct acess to German university once they reach a C1 German language level
All other students must bring their secondary school education up to this level by either:
- learning German to a B2 level and then doing a foundation year (Studienkolleg) in Germany (duration of 40 weeks) - here the German lanuage is also taught to a C1 level as part of the course
- or studying at a university in your home country for 1-2 years and then learning German to a C1 level
Students who already have a Bachelors at need to pass the C1 German to gain entry to Masters level programs.
We get all qualified students a conditional Admission from a German Public University with 2-4 weeks of applying to ISL.
This is a guaranteed place at University. The condition is that you either pass the C1 German exam of the Foundation year / Studienkolleg program.
