Prerequisites for admission to DHBW Mosbach

Please note that all study degrees at the DHBW Mosbach require a very good knowledge of the German language.

For applicants with Foreign School Leaving Certificates special admission requirements are applicable. You can find more information on these requirements on the webpages of the DHBW Headquarters.

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 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.
