Admission to higher education: Recognition of educational qualifications

Under certain conditions, foreign educational certificates can be equated with a local university entrance qualification.

German citizens, stateless persons and foreigners with foreign educational qualifications can study in Schleswig-Holstein if their previous education is recognised as equivalent to a local university entrance qualification.

Information on necessary documents can be found in the state portal "Education Schleswig-Holstein".
