The University of Vechta offers an alternative to attending the Preparatory College Hanover for refugees who wish to study at the University of Vechta and who, due to their foreign secondary school certificate, do not have a direct university entrance qualification but do have an entrance qualification for the Preparatory College.
Refugees who are interested in studying and who are entitled to admission to the Preparatory Course can be admitted to the placement examination in accordance with § 10 of the Framework Examination Regulations. If this examination is passed, an application or enrollment for the study program in which the placement examination was taken can take place.
The requirement for admission to the placement examination is the prior successful completion of (introductory) modules of the intended course of study, which are determined by the departmental student advisor together with the prospective student. Attendance of these modules takes place in the status of a guest auditor; therefore, when selecting the modules, the restrictions according to the specifications on modules that can be studied and on examinations in guest auditor studies must be observed.
In addition, if the language certificate required for studying is not yet available, a German course (TestDaF preparation) should be attended at the University of Vechta.
Entry into this procedure is usually possible in the winter semester; upon successful completion of the module exams and the placement exam, application or enrollment at Vechta University can take place in the following winter semester.
Requirements are a refugee status (irrespective of the status of the asylum procedure), a secondary school certificate by which an entrance qualification for the Preparatory College is available, and knowledge of the German language on the level B2.
If you have any questions or are interested, please contact the contact person, Dr. Katrin Schumacher, as early as possible.
