Prospective foreign students who are not eligible for admission to a German university, can qualify for admission by passing the Assessment Exam (Feststellungsprüfung).

The Assessment Exam (Feststellungsprüfung) qualifies you for admission to a German university. You can apply to any University of Applied Sciences in Germany and to all Universities in Baden-Württemberg.

You can take the Assessment Exam only after having attended the foundation year at the Studienkolleg .

Tuition is free and the course lasts for one year (2 semesters).

Applicants will be admitted to the Studienkolleg after passing the Entrance Exam (Aufnahmetest) thus proving that they can follow lessons taught in German and have sufficient basic knowledge to follow lessons in the main subjects.

In case of failure the Assessment Exam (Feststellungsprüfung) can be taken once more – and only once more – at the earliest 6 months later.

Studienkolleg students usually have the status of enrolled students.

The grades achieved in the  Assessment Exam (Feststellungsprüfung) and the grades achieved in the foundation year study courses add up to the mark you are alloted for the  Assessment Exam.
