Enter a university abroad

Bachelor degree at UBT

Schooling in Germany lasts longer than in other countries. Therefore, it is impossible to enter a university immediately after the 11th grade — first, you need to eliminate the academic difference. There are special educational institutions for foreign students — Studienkollegs. Before applying to the university, you need to pass an exam for knowledge of the English language. The university accepts the results of IELTS or TOEFL. The minimum IELTS score is 6.5. The TOEFL score is not lower than 90.

To confirm your level of English, you must pass IELTS or TOEFL. The minimum IELTS score for admission is 6.5. TOEFL — 88 or higher.

UBT campus

The campus of the educational institution is located in Bayreuth. 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 UBT through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.
