Vocational Higher Education Entrance Qualification

Vocationally qualified applicants who do not hold a  higher education qualification have two options for beginning a degree programme at Heidelberg University. A prerequisite in both cases is participation in one or, if two subjects have been chosen, two advising sessions, in which the applicants will be informed about the content, structure, and requirements of the degree programme as well as the opportunities for specific preparation for pursuing studies, taking into account the requirements of the intended degree programme.

If the results of an aptitude test will be used as a qualification for admission to the university, information on the content, requirements, and procedure of the test must also be provided.  Advising will be conducted by an academic advisor for the specific degree programme. Advising sessions held at other universities in Baden-Württemberg will also be recognised.
