The HTWG Konstanz - University of Applied Sciences primarily offers German-language degree programs. These programs require C1 level German skills to attend full time. C1 University level skills are equivalent to a score of at least 16 points on the TestDaF or a DSH 2 or 3 on the DSH test. You can turn in your application before taking these language tests, however you need to submit the scores to the HTWG Konstanz by the start of the semester you are applying for (March for summer semester, September for winter semester).

However, international students have several other options:


Semester Dates

The academic year consists of two semesters:

Winter Semester: September 1 - February 28/29

Summer Semester: March 1 - August 31


When to Apply

We start accepting online applications for the winter semester as of mid-April; and starting mid-October for the summer semester. Click here for deadlines for our bachelor’s and master’s programs.
