"Studienkolleg" and "Feststellungsprüfung"

In view of the very high demands made in the assessment test, we urgently recommend that you attend a “Studienkolleg”. This offers subject-specific preparatory classes and German courses. The “Studienkolleg” prepares you for the assessment test. You attend it for one year and then sit the assessment test.

You are not admitted to the “Studienkolleg” until you pass an entrance test held before it begins.

If you wish to apply for the “Studienkolleg”, we require the same documents as we do from applicants directly applying for al place at the University. The only difference concerns the proof of your knowledge of German which you have to provide: those applying for admission to a “Studienkolleg” only require a certificate showing they have passed a German test on intermediate level (for example a certificate from the Goethe-Institut).

If your application is accepted, we will enrol you at the “Studienkolleg” in Hannover if you wish. If you pass the assessment test, you can start studying at the University of Hildesheim immediately and are guaranteed a place.
