Students wishing to be admitted to the course must generally hold an entrance qualification which permits admission to a university degree course. Information about the possibility of special admission conditions can be obtained from the Admissions Office of Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences. European and US American school-leaving certificates are generally recognised. It is recommended that non-German applicants submit their certificates to the ASSIST office for checking. Further information can be found under www.uni-assist.de. A practical internship prior to the course is recommended for those applicants with no previous relevant education. In addition, basic knowledge of English is a condition for admission to the course. Level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages is expected.
