You can apply to the Precourse at the Preparatory School if the (anabin) assessment of your foreign educational certificates has resulted in a direct university entrance qualification for technical, mathematical and natural-scientific degree programs or economic and social science degree programs in Germany.
You also require German language skills at proficiency level B2 (CEFR) or higher.
The Precourse takes one semester and concludes with a language assessment test in German.
You must pay a fee to take the course. Please contact the TU Berlin Preparatory School directly for further information.
Admission test and admission:
Pending your complete and timely application, the Preparatory School will invite you to take an admission test. Sample admission tests can be found on the Preparatory School website.
You will only receive two emails from TU Berlin to create your personal TUB account (tuPORT) after you have passed the admission test and if there are sufficient places in the Preparatory School. The following apps will then be available at your tuPORT:
It is in your interest to ensure that you have access to the contact addresses provided (personal/TU email) during the entire process. You are responsible for any errors or missed deadlines caused by incorrect information. Please also check your spam folder!
Even if you intend to enroll in a master's degree program after the completion of the Precourse, as part of the online application for the Precourse you will still need to apply for a technical, mathematical, natural-scientific, economic or social-scientific undergraduate program (bachelor’s or state examination) via uni-assist.
