Educational Requirements for International Degree Seeking Students
If you received your educational qualification abroad and want to apply to TH Rosenheim, you need a valid VPD (preliminary review documentation) from uni-assist. You will need to upload your higher education entrance qualifications/school or university leaving certificates to their application portal. Uni-assist is then going to review your documents if they match the admission requirements for German universities.
Please make sure to apply for either a Bachelor VPD (for a bachelor's degree programme at TH Rosenheim) or a Master VPD (for a master's degree programme at TH Rosenheim)!
Please make sure to apply for a VPD for TH Rosenheim. The VPD will be valid for one year.
Upload your higher education entrance qualifications/school or university leaving certificates.
Apply to TH Rosenheim with your valid VPD.
As a non-German applicant, you have to meet the following requirements for admission to Rosenheim Technical University of Applied Sciences (TH Rosenheim):
You must have an higher education entrance qualification giving you access to higher education in your home country.
Your educational qualification must indicate sufficient knowledge to make studying at a Bavarian higher education institution attainable.
You must demonstrate the level of German / English language skills required by Rosenheim Technical University of Applied Sciences.
…have direct access to admission, be it general or subject-specific
…need extra academic experience in your home country (a specific number of semesters depending on the country in which you got your school-leaving certificate)
…need to do a preparatory course in one of Germany’s Studienkollegs
…are not eligible to apply with your certificate
Mostly, the school-leaving certificates issued by EU countries as well as Great Britain, Liechtenstein, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland are accepted as university entrance qualifications in Germany.
Foreign educational qualifications comparable to a German university qualification provide direct university admission in Bavaria. If these qualifications qualify for all courses of studies in the student’s home country, they principally qualify for all courses of studies in Bavaria as well.
If qualification is restricted to a single course or to a number of particular courses of studies, qualification requirements are also restricted in Bavaria to these subjects or courses of studies.
If admission to university is granted due to studies abroad, the applicant in Bavaria fulfils the qualification requirements for a course of studies only in this/these or in neighbouring fields of studies.
Applicants from certain countries, particularly non-EU ones, may require further academic experience alongside their higher education entrance qualification.
Therefore, you may have to complete an introductory academic experience in your home country, cf. a specific number of semesters in a Bachelor’s Programme in your home country, or attend a preparatory course (“Studienkolleg”) in Germany before applying to TH Rosenheim.
Studienkollegs in Germany mainly prepare for German-taught Bachelor's degree programmes. Therefore, German language skills at B2 level are required for the entrance exam at a Studienkolleg. Information on Studienkollegs in Germany can be found at studienkollegs.de.
In Bavaria, the Studienkolleg Coburg is responsible for preparatory courses specifically for universities of applied sciences.

The database on admission requirements of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) allows international students to check whether they meet the requirements for the degree programme of their choice in Germany.
Extra academic experience in your home country
Applicants from certain countries, particularly non-EU ones, may require some introductory academic experience alongside their higher education entrance qualification. If that applies to you, you will need extra academic experience in your home country (a specific number of semesters depending on the country in which you got your school leaving certificate).
