Prerequisites for DHBW Admission

All Degree Programs of DHBW Mosbach are taught in German Language.

For Applicants with Foreign School Leaving Certificates special admission requirements are applicable:


To be de facto enrolled you need a contract of employment with a training company (which is the crucial precondition of DHBW enrolment). A work permit will not be necessary as the practical training periods are an integral part of your studies.

However, you might need a study visa. Here you can find addresses of German embassies all over the world. Once you are in Germany, you need to apply for a residence permit for the time of your studies.

If you are a citizen of the EU, neither visa nor work permit is needed. However, registration at the local registration authority is recommended.
