- Bachelor’s degree and teaching degree programmes, the German magister degree in Catholic Theology, Human Medicine (Model Medical Programme), and Law
In order to qualify for entrance into a degree programme leading to a first professional qualification a German or foreign higher education entrance qualification (Hochschulzugangsberechtigung, HZB) is required. At the University of Augsburg, this is an admission requirement for entrance into bachelor's degree and teaching degree programmes, the German magister degree in Catholic Theology, Human Medicine (Model Medical Programme), and Law.
A higher education entrance qualification can be acquired as a general or subject-specific qualification. Those with a vocational qualification can also acquire a general or subject-specific higher education entrance qualification.
Please note: An entrance qualification for study at a university of applied sciences (Fachhochschulreife) does not entitle the holder to study at the University of Augsburg. Please note the following information with respect to different higher education entrance qualifications.
Evidence of a German higher education entrance qualification:
- German nationals with a higher education entrance qualification acquired in Germany ( general or subject-specific higher education entrance qualification).
- Degree programmes that can be studied with a subject-specific higher education entrance qualification.
- Foreign and stateless applicants who have acquired their German higher education entrance qualification in Germany or at a German school abroad (Bildungsinländer).
Under specific conditions in accordance with Art. 88 Para. 5 and 6 of the Bavarian Higher Education Innovation Act ( Bayerisches Hochschulinnovationsgesetz (BayHIG) in conjunction with §§ 29 to 33 of the Qualifications Ordinanace ( Qualifikationsverordnung, QualV) vocationally qualified persons who do not possess a secondary school leaving certificate (Abitur) or any other higher education entrance qualification are able to gain admission to university. A distinction is made between general university access for graduates of a vocational further education examination (e.g., master craftsperson, technician) and subject-specific university access for qualified professionals.
