Further information

Procedure for verification of admission to the programme (university entrance qualification)

The verification procedure will be administered by the Steinbeis University Berlin.

Diploma Supplement

Verification of the documents submitted and the Diploma Supplement.


Via the database anabin it can be verified whether the educational system of the country of origin (abroad) is equivalent to the German university entrance qualification. (The decision will not be made by our university. The “Zentralstelle für ausländisches Bildungswesen” (central organisation for foreign educational systems) decides on the recognition of foreign educational certificates. These are published in the database.)

Recognition via the Senate Department for Education, Academic Science and Research in Berlin

If the foreign educational qualification is not explicitly mentioned in anabin and as a result there is no clear assessment, then the Senate Department for Education, Academic Science and Research in Berlin has to come to a decision on whether the foreign educational certificate is a university entrance qualification.

Admission via Academic Assessment Office of the German Embassy (APS)

Applicants from China, Vietnam and Mongolia must include a certificate from the Academic Assessment Office of the German Embassy in their application.
