Current study offer
We strongly advise you to apply in good time (at least 4 weeks before the final deadline), in case there are any queries or missing documents have to be handed in.
All applications from non-Germans have to be pre-checked by the "Application Services for International Students (uni-assist)" to ensure they are complete and fulfill all necessary formal requirements. Please note that there is a fee for this service.
Uni-Assist enables applicants to apply for admission to several universities of their choice with one set of documents only.
You should submit the following documents to*:
Technische Hochschule Brandenburg
c/o uni-assist e.V.
We recommend that you have these documents translated in good time by a sworn translator and then have them authenticated by a notary public, a public authority or embassy.
If your secondary-school leaving certificate is not considered as equivalent to the German “Abitur” or “Reifezeugnis” and you have not been enrolled at an institute of higher education before applying to Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences, you will not be directly admitted to degree programme. In this case you have the option of taking an entrance examination, called “Feststellungsprüfung”, at a “Studienkolleg”. Passing this would enable you to study at Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences. The certificate of the “Feststellungsprüfung” is a necessary part of your application.
You can also apply for our one-year study preparation offer "Studienvorbereitung Brandenburg" in cooperation with Potsdam University. You will need to apply until 15th July at uni-assist. A B2 level in German is needed. You can also get accepted after an internal exam if you have reached a TestAS-result of 100 or above. Please ask us for further information.
Nobody is perfect in a foreign language. Nonetheless in order to study at our University you have to pass one of the following examinations in German as a Foreign Language:
We are happy to give you further information and advise on these matters.
Brandenburg University offers an intensive preparatory German course. In the summer semester we offer the German course "Deutschplus", in the winter semester you can take part in the DSH-Kurs at the University of Potsdam.
Please apply until 31st January for the summer semester or 15th August for the winter semester at Uni-Assist. You must fulfill the admission requirements and hand in a German language certificate at B2-level.
There are exceptions to these requirements if you want to study at our university for only one or two semesters or if you are a student of one of our partner universities.
To make your stay in Germany easier, we recommend that you take part in a German language course in your home country before coming to Germany. If you come to Germany and have already passed one of the required examinations, you will have overcome an important hurdle and saved yourself a lot of trouble. Please contact us if you would like further information on such courses.
