    Applicants must meet the following requirements:

    1. The IB must be obtained after attending at least twelve uninterrupted (continuous) years of full-time education. The 6 examination subjects taken must conform to IB conditions stipulated by the German Higher Education system:

    • 2 languages at A or B level (one of which at least must be an advanced foreign language studied uninterruptedly as "Language A" or "Language B HL" )
    • 1 Natural Science subject (Biology, Chemistry, Physics)
    • 1 Mathematics subject (Mathematical Methods or Mathematics HL or Further Mathematics together with Mathematics HL)
    • 1 social Science Subject (History, Geography, Economics, Psychology, Philosophy, Social Anthropology, Business and Management, and Global Politics)
    • The 6th compulsory subject may be one of the above or one of the following subjects recognised by the IB: Art/Design, Music, Theatre Arts, Film, Literature and Performance, or another modern foreign language: Latin, Classical Greek, General Chemistry, Applied Chemistry, Environmental Systems, Computer Science, Design Technology, World Religions, Sports exercise and health science.
    • Of the 6 subjects, 3 have to be Higher Level (HL) subjects, and 3 at the Standard Level (SL). The Higher Level (HL) subjects must contain 1 Mathematics subject.
    • All subjects must be taken uninterruptedly (continuously), over two years.

    Candidates have to attain a minimum IB Grade of 4 on the six compulsory subjects. Where an IB grade of 3 is awarded in one subject only, it is possible to compensate for this if another subject taken at the same level has been awarded at least an IB Grade 5, and an aggregate of 24 points has been attained.

    2.  If the conditions according to point 1 are not fulfilled, an additional examination in accordance with the Hochschulzugangsqualifikation* (high school entrance qualification) is required. Recognition as a subject-related University entrance qualification is also possible by a successful university study of one year.

    *IB applicants who do not fulfil the conditions in point 1 may take the “Studienkolleg” for 1 year and write an examination afterwards called “Feststellungsprüfung”. The “Feststellungsprüfung” is in accordance with the “Framework Regulations for Admission to University Education with Foreign Educational Qualifications”, for studying at the “Studienkolleg”.
