Entrance Qualification for Higher Education in Germany



The eligibility for higher education in Germany is connected with several requirements. As is the case with several schools and colleges in different nations. Similarly, there is a criteria laid out for the student’s who want to seek enrollment in German universities. “Abitur” is a University Entrance Qualification examination that ensures higher education enrollment in Germany. It assures the student’s above 12 years of high school education to get admission to study in any university or college in Germany. The student can choose any subject or graduation degree.

The next big question is what about international student’s who do not have German “Abitur”. They must have a similar certificate that is equivalent of it. Or else they must have some proof that shows their previous education is equal to “Abitur”. Now, to put it practically the school certificate given while leaving the institution after completion of high school studies or graduation is eligible for admission into higher education in Germany.

There are several categories for enrollment into higher education in Germany. A direct procedure entitles the student’s to apply directly and get enrolled in any German university. Indirect eligibility requires a student to undergo a year of preparatory course in Studienkolleg, then pass the university entrance exam. General category entitlement gives a student complete freedom to apply in any school and college to complete a graduation program in any of the universities in Germany.

Moreover, there is an entitlement category for a particular graduation degree, including MS, MBA or subject related graduation. The specific subject related areas recognized in Germany:

Technology and science abbreviated as (T)

Social and economy (W)

Medical and Biology or related subject area (M)

Arts (Humanities) and languages (G and S or G/S)

How can you know if the school leaving certificate in secondary education is eligible for admission into higher education in Germany?

Without any question not all school leaving certificates are accepted for admission in Germany. There are several discussions in this regard. For more information log onto or the Anabin website:

In addition to this, the university website to where a student is applying gives sufficient information on the entrance qualification for higher education in Germany.  However, GRE Coaching, GMAT Preparation, SAT Training, TOEFL and IELTS are good enough for admission into German schools and colleges. All the universities in Germany accept the scores a student gets in these examinations. All you need to do is to live on your expectations and create your own space.

Europe opens its doors wider to students


The European Parliament (which represents all the countries in the EU) has recently passed a legislation which is of tremendous benefit for international students from non-European countries like India. According to the legislation,

  • Non-EU nationals can now stay for at least nine months after concluding their studies or research in order to look for a job or set up a business;
  • Non-EU students and researchers can move more easily within the EU, and no longer need to file a new visa application when moving from one EU country to another (rather, they need only to notify the country to which they are moving);
  • Researchers are entitled to bring their family members with them, and those family members are allowed to work during their time in Europe (this provision does not apply to students, however);
  • Non-EU students are entitled to work at least 15 hours per week during their studies.

However, a few of the earlier proposals were NOT accepted, such as:

* Working for 20-hours a week, which is approved instead for 15 hours

* Bringing spouses while students are still studying – still not possible

* 18 months post-study residence period – not agreed upon but increased to 9 months

This is definitely good news for students from India, who could stay back to look for employment and also work during their studies to make more money!

Visa documentation – how to handle successfully: Admission deadlines for Spring intake are coming to a close and very soon, students will get the I-20s. Then starts the most complex process – the documentation for visa.

As known already, the US Consulates will mostly depend on the interview to approve or reject a student (F1) visa. A little-known fact is that financial documentation though not mandatory, is essential to improve one’s visa chances. If an applicant wants to prove that he/she has sufficient funds to study, how does he/she establish that? Having the right documents on hand and submitting them for verification becomes crucial during the interview. While academic documents are predictable, the financial documents are dynamic and critical for visa purpose. Many students do the mistake of obtaining fake or badly prepared documents. This is illegal, dangerous and could lead to a permanent ban on entering the US for education.
