Linguistic and subject requirements

Can I study?

To study at a German university, you need a ”university entrance qualification” (Hochschulzugangsberechtigung = HZB). In general, this is the school certificate that qualifies you for university study, for example the “Abitur”.

The first step, therefore, is to submit your certificates to the Zeugnisanerkennungsstelle at Nuremberg Tech for evaluation. For this, simply send you school or university certificates to us directly for evaluation. You can find the application form for this and other important information here: in German / in English.

You will also need very good German language proficiency to study with us ( generally  C1 level). You will need to prove your language skills via a recognized language certificate e.g. DSH or TestDaF. To reach this high level, you will need to attend an intensive preparatory course lasting several months.

Students with a refugee background

Support for success at university

Enrolled students with a refugee background are supported by numerous support services during their time as a student on their way to completing their degree. The personal counseling service provides professional guidance through all the hurdles you might face related to your studies or other bureaucratic difficulties while pursuing your degree. Besides this service, the International Office and the international student mentors organize a series of workshops and informative or networking events each semester according to demand. The skilled Peer-to-Peer Network is available for all international students and provides a framework for dynamic exchange as well as social and cultural activity.
