There are special educational institutions for foreign students — Studienkollegs. Before submitting documents to the university, applicants take an English language exam. The university accepts the results of IELTS or TOEFL. The minimum TOEFL score is 88. The IELTS score is not lower than 6.5.

KIT campus

The campus of the educational institution is located in Heilbronn. 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. Foreigners who come to KIT through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.
