What does the application process entail for German and European citizens with foreign certificates and diplomas?
Recognition of foreign certificates and diplomas
German and European citizens with foreign certificates and diplomas need a certificate of recognition in order to apply.
Choosing a degree program
After you have received your certificate of recognition, you can start choosing a program. Please note that, depending on your previous education, the certificate may also contain a comment saying you are limited to studying certain subjects.
More information on subjects and degrees offered at JGU can be found here.
Proof of language proficiency
Proof of language proficiency is required for almost all students with foreign certificates and diplomas.
In most cases, you will only be allowed to start studying at JGU after passing the DSH or the assessment test (Feststellungsprüfung). If you do not pass the DSH the first time, you are allowed to retake it twice. The assessment test can only be retaken once. If you fail the assessment test twice, you will not be allowed entry to a degree program at JGU.
You can apply online.
Please make sure you enclose all necessary certificates and diplomas.
