The prerequisites for admission to both programs are proof of:

  • The general university entrance qualification for German universities of applied sciences.

  • The subject-related university entrance qualification (also conveyed by the GJU pre-year).

  • The advanced technical college entrance qualification, or

  • Entrance qualification for a bachelor's degree program at universities of applied sciences recognized as equivalent by law or by the competent state authority.


The course of study is not subject to a numerus clauses admission restriction and further language admission requirements for the study program are German and English language skills. Students must provide evidence of the following German certificates:

  • At the beginning of the study program (or by the end of the GJU pre-year): at least B1 (CEFR).

  • By the end of the 4th semester at the latest: at least B2 (CEFR).

(It is assumed that a language level of C1 is required to pass the German language modules, which is why the GJU language courses also aim at this level. It is also highly recommended to continue language training once having moved to Germany.)

Students must demonstrate an English certificate of at least B2 (or TOEFL: at least 72) prior to the 1st semester (prior to the GJU pre-year). Passed exams at the German Language Center of the GJU will be accepted as proof. 

For those who do not have the relevant English language certificate at the time of enrollment for the pre-year, GJU offers the placement test. Applicants would be accepted as students for the pre-year if they can demonstrate English language skills on a B2 level or a level that can be raised to B2 by regular GJU English courses.

 Admission in the THWS-hosted program requires the submission of one relevant English language certificate at the time of application at THWS.

Arabic language skills are an advantage for practical components in the second semester, but not mandatory.
