Catch up on university entrance qualifications

There are various ways to obtain your university entrance qualification – i.e. your A-Levels (Abitur) or Vocational Technical Diploma (Fachabitur) – in order to study at a university. This takes two to three years, depending on your previous degree and your time flexibility. You can also make up your A-Levels in just one year if you have already obtained a Vocational Technical Diploma or your school leaving certificate abroad, but this is not recognised in Germany.
