We regret that we are unable to accept certificates and verifications other than those listed above as proof of language proficiency for studying at Bingen UAS.

Anyone who wishes to study at a German university needs what is called a higher education entrance qualification (HZB). With the higher education entrance qualification, applicants prove that they are entitled to study in Germany on the basis of their prior schooling.
A foreign higher education entrance qualification qualifies applicants to study at a German institution of higher education, provided that the foreign proof of education is recognised as a higher education entrance qualification in Germany.
Is my higher education entrance qualification recognised as sufficient for studying at Bingen Technical University of Applied Sciences?
Whether your higher education entrance qualification is sufficient is examined individually during the application process, and is subject to a processing fee of 30 Euros. We are unable to make any individual statements in advance about the recognition of your higher education entrance qualification (without having received an application and proof of payment of the processing fee). However, you can find out about the basic recognition of your higher education entrance qualification in Germany on the website of the DAAD. This information is based on the anabin database of the Central Office for Foreign Education (ZaB).
If your foreign higher education entrance qualification is not sufficient for direct admission to a degree course in Germany, you have the option of attending a preparatory course. There, together with other students from abroad, you will acquire the academic and cultural prerequisites needed to study successfully in Germany. The preparatory courses generally end after one year with an assessment test. After successfully passing the test, graduates can study anywhere in Germany in the subjects that correspond to the subject they have attended.
In Rhineland-Palatinate, two preparatory courses prepare students for the assessment test:
