Bachelor degree at UH

You cannot enter a German university after the 11th grade, because schooling there lasts longer than 11 years. First, you need to eliminate the academic difference. To do this, foreign students go through a preparatory year in special educational institutions — Studienkollegs. Before submitting documents to the university, applicants take an English language exam. The university accepts the results of IELTS or TOEFL.

Master's degree at UH

It is impossible to enter UH for a master's program without confirming knowledge of the English language. You can do this by passing IELTS, PTE or TOEFL. The minimum TOEFL score for admission is 70. IELTS — 6.5 or higher.


UH campus

The campus of the educational institution is located in Hamburg. This opens up all the delights of life in a big city for students: a rich infrastructure, a large selection of entertainment, convenient transport, as well as more opportunities for internships or part-time jobs. However, for some students, such an abundance of opportunities can be distracting. The educational institution has its own library. Here, students do their homework or just have a good time reading an interesting book. The exchange of intercultural experience occupies a special place in training at UH. The educational institution regularly invites foreign students to participate in exchange programs and organizes various joint events.
