Applicants from Non-EU Countries
Students cannot directly apply to Niedersächsisches Studienkolleg.
Applicants have to fill in and send an application form for admission to a university, a university of applied sciences or to ASSIST. The dates and deadlines are available at the respective university as well as the information whether to apply directly to the university or via UNI-ASSIST (see also these lists of universities and of universities of applied sciences).
Note: Depending on the desired study course in some cases it is not possible to change study course and/or university afterwards. So please make sure you apply to the university you want to visit.
A successful application is forwarded to Studienkolleg, and applicants are then invited to the Studienkolleg´s entry exam which takes place in February and September each year.
Most universities put students down for a place which will be given to them once they have successfully finished their course at Studienkolleg.
Start of studies in summer and winter semester
Most courses of studies at universities in Lower Saxony start in winter semester. If you apply for summer semester please make sure that the respective university offers a start of studies in summer semester as well (see also these lists of universities and of universities of applied sciences).
Note for handicapped persons
Please inform Studienkolleg directly as soon as you have received the admission to the entry exam from a university or a university of applied sciences in Lower Saxony. Please don’t forget to send a medical certificate about your handicap.
