Admission to Studienkolleg at Fachhochschule Dortmund is no longer possible!

The state government decided to close the state-run preparatory courses (Studienkollegs) in North Rhine-Westphalia in 2009/2010. However, international applicants with a school graduation certificate that does not automatically qualify for studies at a German institute of higher education who are required to undergo an assessment test, the so-called “Feststellungsprüfung” may apply to Studienkollegs in other German federal states (with the exception of Bremen) or to the two church-run Studienkollegs in North Rhine-Westphalia. Applications must be sent directly to:

Studienkolleg des Ökumenischen Studienwerks e. V. in Bochum:

Preparatory course for engineering and sciences

www.studienkolleg-bochum.de

 

Studienkolleg Mettingen:

Preparatory courses for humanities, medicine and biological sciences, engineering and sciences, economics and business studies

www.studienkolleg-mettingen.de

 

There may be a chance to get directly admitted to a German university or Fachhochschule without attending a Studienkolleg if you have passed a university entrance examination or have proof of previous university study. You may look up detailed requirements for admission to study in Germany at www.anabin.de .
