Here you find answers to most of the most important questions relating to the Marketing Management program.
How and when can I apply?
Students with foreign degrees should send their application and documents to ASSIST e.V. ( www.uni-assist.de )!
ASSIST checks the documents and and sends them on to the University of Applied Science in Eberswalde.
Application period is from 1 June to 15 July.
Since you have to apply through ASSIST please calculate delays. We recommend you apply as early as possible.
How can I establish proof of my German language skills? (for foreign applicants)
Because the program is carried out mainly in German, applicants must prove their knowledge of the language. Certificates are:
- Goethe Institut (C1)
- TestDaF (4x4)
This test must be included in the application material and can not be handed in at a later date.
Native German speakers require Abitur (German „A“- level) from a recognised German speaking school or the successful completion of an examination from a German speaking university or university of applied science. This would mean the student would not require a certificate to be admitted onto the course.
Where can I find information on whether degrees/final examinations from abroad are recognised here in Germany?
There is a data bank of information which compares degrees and final examinations from around the world www.anabin.de
Here you can select according to country, training institutes, types of institutions, types of degrees, final examinations and academic institutions.
How can I be sure I satisfy the admission's criteria?
Bachelor or Diploma in business related course of education or an equivalent qualification from a college within Germany or abroad.
For admission you need to have reached 180 ECTS points.
Applicants will only be considered if they can prove a college qualification with a grade of at least 2,5.
An average grade of 3 would be acceptable if the prospective student were to possess at least 18 months relevant work experience after they had completed their bachelor or diploma course.
