Not all foreign school certificates, which - sometimes in combination with a university entrance examination - entitle you to study in your country of origin, are recognized for admission to studies in Germany.

If, according to „anabin“, you are able to prove periods of study in your home country or attend a preparatory college or take the assessment test, the University of Wuppertal offers you another possibility to acquire the university entrance qualification via the "entrance examination".

The entrance examination at the University of Wuppertal is the "Test for Foreign Students - TestAS" (www.testas.de). If you can prove a standard score of at least 95 in the TestAS core test and a score of at least 100 in the TestAS subject module assigned to your desired course of study, this, together with your foreign certificates, counts as a foreign, subject-linked university entrance qualification for admission to a subject-related course of study at the University of Wuppertal.

The International Student Office is responsible for the admission and advising of applicants with a foreign university entrance qualification and foreign educational certificates.

An overview of the assignment of the Wuppertal Bachelor's degree programs to the TestAS subject modules can be found here.
