Hints
In accordance with the Higher Education Act, the recognition of foreign higher education entrance qualifications is granted to persons who apply for a course of study for access to the desired course of study by the respective university. The contact details can be found on the website of the ministry responsible for universities (see below). This applies regardless of whether the applicants' place of residence is within or outside Rhineland-Palatinate and also regardless of their nationality. However, this recognition takes place exclusively in relation to the chosen course of study, i.e. the university will check whether the applicant has the general and specific admission requirements for the chosen course of study and, if necessary, he or she will be admitted to the relevant course of study. On the other hand, a general recognition of the university entrance qualification does not take place by the university, i.e. the applicant does not receive a certificate from the university confirming equivalence with, for example, the German Abitur in general. Such a "general" recognition, which applies nationwide, is carried out for applicants residing in Rhineland-Palatinate by the Supervisory and Service Directorate (ADD) Trier.
The decision on the equivalence of a teacher training examination acquired in another federal state with the Rhineland-Palatinate Bachelor's and Master's degree for the corresponding teaching profession or a teacher training qualification with the Rhineland-Palatinate qualification for the corresponding teaching profession is generally made as part of the application procedure for recruitment to the preparatory service or school service. A separate application for a declaration of equivalence of the teacher training examination or the teacher training qualification is not required. If, exceptionally, a decision on the determination of equivalence is required outside the recruitment procedure, a written request must be made.
