For many international prospective students, Germany is the country of choice for studying abroad. In some cases, international school leaving certificates do not entitle you to start your studies in Germany directly. If this applies to you, you need to visit a „Studienkolleg" and pass a „Feststellungsprüfung". Uni assist e.V. https://www.uni-assist.de/en/ – an independent institution – rates international school leaving certificates for many German universities. To find out about your certificate visit the website „Check Hochschulzugang" . If the result says „You are holding a subject-restricted higher education entrance qualification and need to visit a „Studienkolleg" [„Sie haben einen fachgebundenen Zugang zum Studienkolleg/zur Feststellungsprüfung"] or "The documents certify that you have the university entrance qualification for a Studienkolleg" our foundation course is perfectly right for you.


Within one semester (March to July) you earn the subject-related and methodological basic knowledge you need for your studies in Bremen. You also visit individually chosen classes within your future subject. After successfully passing the „Zugangsprüfung" [university entrance exam] you can apply for your subject at the University of Bremen, the HSB – City University of Applied Sciences Bremen or at the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven.
