As the German Abitur (high school leaving certificate) is held to such a high standard, it is often quite difficult for international applicants to meet the equivalent. With international high school diplomas, direct entry is usually not an option. In order to bridge the gap, KLU offers students the opportunity to complete our Preparation Program at our partner institution in Berlin.

All interested students are asked to apply for our Bachelor of Science Program and if you do not satisfy the requirements for studying at a university in Germany, you could be eligible to enroll in the Preparation Program. Once you have submitted all of your documents, our admission team will review your application and depending on your eligibility offer a study spot.

For business studies you take a combination of subject courses, as well as introductory German (identified as a necessity by the state). The program prepares you for the Feststellungsprüfung (FSP), which is an entry exam conducted in Hamburg. You will take the FSP at the end of the program, and upon passing you will be eligible to start your Bachelor studies at KLU.
