Studying with a specialist diploma

Studying with a specialist diploma - these doors are open to you

Do you have the subject-specific higher education entrance qualification or the technical college entrance qualification in your pocket and are now planning to start studying? Regardless of which of the two degrees you have: at a university of applied sciences, you are basically free to study all courses with a high school diploma. The situation is different when it comes to studying at the university. Taking into account how the technical college entrance qualification and the subject-related higher education entrance qualification differ from one another, lead in principle four ways to study with a specialist diploma:

The university

The subject-specific higher education entrance qualification entitles you to study at any university of applied sciences (FH) in Germany. The advantage: no matter in which direction your school leaving certificate is going, you are basically free to take the courses that the FH has to offer.

The aim of the advanced technical college entrance qualification is to prepare the students for studying at the technical college. The degree allows you to take all courses at any German university of applied sciences.

The fact is: German universities of applied sciences are generally drawing for their very practical courses out. It is up to you whether you prefer the economic, a technical or rather a social course. You can choose from the following areas to study with a vocational qualification:

1. Economics
2. Business informatics
3. Civil engineering
4. Industrial engineering
5. Mechanical engineering
6. Engineering
7. Social work
8. Pedagogy
9. Psychology
10. Social management

The University

Studying with a technical qualification or with a subject-related higher education entrance qualification is permitted at German universities. But: this option is linked to the restriction that you can only choose the courses that you want match your school education. An example: Did you specialize in economics in advance with the help of your school leaving certificate? Then you can apply for a business degree such as business administration at a German university, but not for law.

Note: the advanced technical college entrance qualification makes studying with a technical qualification - with very few exceptions - not possible at universities. Only in Lower Saxony and Hesse do you have the opportunity to start a bachelor’s degree with the technical college entrance qualification. Tip: if you are unsure whether you meet the requirements for studying with a Fachabi, you can get information from one of the university's advice centers.

The dual study

With the advanced technical college entrance qualification as well as the subject-specific university entrance qualification, you have the opportunity to start a dual course of study. Two things are considered to be a prerequisite for studying with a Fachabi: First, they must University admission requirements must be observed and, on the other hand, the employer's conditions must be met. It is up to the universities to decide whether they accept students with a technical college entrance qualification for the dual course of study. Good to know: at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University, a test is required in advance to check your ability to study. But the company itself can also decide which conditions it would like to assert for its applicants. Important: if you are planning a dual course of study, you should inform yourself thoroughly about the requirements in advance.

The distance learning

It is a wonderful option to make a degree possible: distance learning. If you would like to be admitted to a desired degree program of this type, you have to take into account the rules of the responsible university. In most cases, both the subject-specific higher education entrance qualification and the technical college entrance qualification entitle the holder to start distance learning. By the way: this form of study is very popular because it enables you to study while continuing your professional training.
