Program description

Preparation Program

As the German Abitur (high school leaving certificate) is held to such a high standard, it is often quite difficult for international applicants to meet the equivalent. With international high school diplomas, direct entry is usually not an option. In order to bridge the gap, KLU offers students the opportunity to complete our Preparation Program at our partner institution Berlin International College in Berlin.

For business studies you take a combination of subject courses, as well as introductory German (identified as a necessity by the state). The program prepares you for the Feststellungsprüfung (FSP), which is an entry exam conducted in Hamburg. You will take the FSP at the end of the program, and upon passing you will be eligible to start your Bachelor studies at KLU.

Admission requirements

The Preparation Program is generally for international students who do not meet the criteria to study directly at the university level in Germany, or who have the wrong combination of courses in the IB Diploma.

Additional language requirements are needed before the start of the program:

  • All Students: Minimum C1 English Language skills (with proof)
  • Students planning the shortened program: Minimum A2 German Language skills (with proof)

For more information about admission requirements, please visit the university website.
