Educational qualifications obtained abroad can be recognised in Schleswig-Holstein under certain conditions.

If you obtained your educational qualification abroad, it can be recognised in Schleswig-Holstein under certain conditions.

Depending on which degree is to be recognised, different bodies are responsible for this. For example, the state universities/universities of applied sciences in Schleswig-Holstein decide independently (within the framework of admission and/or enrolment procedures) whether foreign educational certificates entitle them to study.

An overview of the documents required for the recognition of foreign educational qualifications. More detailed information on this can be obtained from the competent authority.


Information on the recognition requirements for foreign educational qualifications for access to higher education/universities of applied sciences can be found on the website of the Information System for the Recognition of Foreign Educational Qualifications (anabin).
