If international students do not yet have the necessary entry requirements to start studying in Germany, they can obtain the relevant university entrance qualification through the assessment test. With successful participation in the TUDIAS Preparatory College, applicants are entitled to take the assessment test. The assessment test is taken at the end of the 2nd semester.
What is the assessment test?
The basic requirement for studying in Germany is the Abitur or Fachhochschulreife. In order to be allowed to study in Germany, foreign applicants need a comparable qualification. If the foreign degree is not recognized in Germany, you can alternatively start studying after attending a preparatory college with a subsequent assessment test. In the assessment test, the linguistic, subject-specific, and methodological prerequisites of the desired German university studies of the applicant are checked.
How do I register for the assessment test?
After successfully participating in our Preparatory College for one year, applicants are admitted to the subsequent assessment test without registering. A written registration for the assessment test is required if the applicant failed to pass the assessment test the first time.
What is the procedure for the assessment test?
The process of the assessment test is subject to the “Ordinance of the Saxon State Ministry for Science and Art to determine the suitability of applicants with foreign educational qualifications for admission to higher education institutions in the Federal Republic of Germany (Assessment Examination Ordinance – FSPVO) of November 18, 2011“.
The assessment test includes written and oral tests. The students are examined in writing in three subjects, which differ depending on the chosen main course, and an oral examination takes place in at least one subject. In all cases, the assessment test includes a written German test.
If you have successfully passed the assessment test, you will receive an assessment certificate from the TUDIAS Preparatory College at TU Dresden. With this certificate you can apply for a place at any college or university in Germany.
