Education System in Germany

For your quick understanding since you have come to this page (brief understanding):

Applying for Bachelors in Germany:

You need to have 13 years of education in India. That means you should have done at least one more year after your class 12 or A Levels in India or a class 10 and a 3 year Diploma. TestDaf or DSH test is required to study Bachelors in Germany. Programs taught in English will require you to appear for IELTS test or TOEFL test

Applying for MBA or Masters in Germany:

You need NOT do a GRE, but a good score may help your profile to secure admissions in Germany. 15 or 16 years of Indian education (successfully finished Bachelors) is acceptable. No knowledge of German language is required but gaining German language knowledge equivalent to A1 level would be very beneficial to you.

Let’s explain the types of Institutions in Germany in short:

Germany nearly has 400 officially recognised universities with over 15000 study programmes to choose from.

In Germany, higher education institutions are referred to as Hochschule. This term covers:

  • Universities (Universitäten) – where there is a strong research element
  • Technical universities– strong focus on engineering and technology courses
  • Colleges of art, film and music– these require special admission, usually via an entrance examination
  • Universities of applied sciences– for students who prefer a practical approach to study


For a little longer an explanation, read below:

Universities of Applied Sciences in Germany

Universities of Applied Sciences in Germany offers great practical relevance and focus, well-founded academic training for degree programmes in the field of technology, business and management, social studies, media and design. If you like learning and working in the applied field, then this will be an interesting option for you.

Colleges of Art, Film and Music in Germany

The colleges of Art, Film and Music in Germany are perfect for anyone wishing to turn their artistic talent into a profession. The range of programmes extends from painting, design and architecture to directing, music and drama. The entry threshold is high, the training excellent. One to one teaching or classes in small groups ensure that the young artists get the finishing artistic touches.

Church-maintained Colleges in Germany

For students interested in a career in the field of social work, education, special needs education or curative/therapeutic education, plus nursing and health care professionals, and church musicians.

Private Universities in Germany

Despite the high tuition fees – around Euro 1,800 to 4,700 per semester – private universities in Germany are becoming a popular option. Some of the reasons for this lie in the good reputation: small study groups, strong ties with business and industry, very practical focus, strong international orientation, short studies, good career prospects. But before you sign a contract with a private university, please make sure that you check that the university is state recognized. If it’s not, the academic degree you gain will not be recognized, which could lead to major problems when you start looking for a job after graduating.

Universities of Cooperative Education in Germany

These are not higher education institutions. Nevertheless, their certificates and degrees are partly recognized as equivalent to Fachhochschulen qualifications. Berufsakademien offer academic studies (focuses on business, technology, social studies) in combination with vocational training, i.e. cooperative education. This dual training alternates between courses taken at the academy and practical (workplace) training in a company. Some of the Berufsakademien even deliver the training bilingually: German-English. This profile has resulted in many companies showing a strong interest in Berufsakademie graduates, including, in particular, global players with their branches around the world.
