The application process depends on the study programme of your choice:

  • BSc Automation Technology
  • BSc Power Engineering and Renewable Energies

Master's degree courses

International applicants for a non-international master’s degree course at Hochschule Mannheim can send their application directly to the Department of their choice. The respective application deadline and language requirements must be considered.

Non-international study programmes (Bachelor)

International applicants for a regular bachelor’s degree course at a Fachhochschule (University of Applied Sciences) in the state of Baden-Württemberg need to first contact the Centre for International Students Studienkolleg Konstanz, where the international records are validated and the certificate of access to higher education needed for an application is issued. The Studienkolleg Konstanz also checks whether your command of German is sufficient for attending a course of studies with German as the language of instruction.

As soon as you have obtained the certificate of access to higher education from the Studienkolleg Konstanz as well as the proof of your German language skills (DSH or equivalent), you can apply online for the study programme you desire.
