Foreign students applying for bachelor’s programs at the HTWG Konstanz who have completed school and university degrees abroad need to have their qualifications verified by the Studienkolleg Konstanz (STK) before they apply.
This is required even if you have already successfully passed a “Feststellungsprüfung”, the DSH-test or TestDaF somewhere other than at the HTWG Konstanz.
You can first check if your educational background entitles you to study in Germany directly or if you first need to attend the Studienkolleg preparatory program. For information about how your educational credentials will be assessed and whether you can immediately start your studies, go to www.anabin.kmk.org.
All HTWG Konstanz applicants must have advanced B2 or C1 German language skills in order to be admitted to a degree program where most courses are taught in German.
Your application will only be processed once you have turned in the appropriate German language proficiency certificate (link to a German website), such as the DSH (minimum of DSH-2) or a comparable test (TestDaF: 4.0, telc: German C1 University). You can however turn in your application before taking the exam. Simply include a document stating that you have registered for such an exam with your application. The exam must take place before the start of your studies.
For more information about these issues, please see the Studienkolleg website.
