Bachelor degree at UB

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.

Master's degree at UB

The academic performance of a student in an undergraduate program plays an important role in the selection of candidates. To confirm your level of English, you must pass IELTS or TOEFL. The minimum IELTS score for admission is 7. TOEFL — 90 or higher. There is an opportunity to study at UB via online master's programs.


UB campus

The educational institution has a suburban campus. This means that students study close to a big city and can quickly get to it by public transport. At the same time, this location allows you to create a close-knit student community, since all events are held on campus. The university students have access to the library. It is an integral part of learning. Students come here for educational literature or to do their homework. Student life at UB is filled with intercultural activities, as not only local students study here, but also students from abroad. The exchange of knowledge and experience, networking and new acquaintances — all this is an integral part of studenthood.
