What is BID and BAN?

What is recognized as official certification?

Any public body carrying a seal, e. g. authorities, parish offices, with exception of law firms, accounting firms, societies, are authorized to officially certify.

Please note:  Documents and papers not written in German can only be accepted if they are submitted in translation by a court-appointed or appointed interpreter.

What is the meaning of "University Entrance Qualification (UEQ)"?

„University Entrance Qualification (UEQ)“ is the higher education entrance qualification acquired outside of Germany, without an assessment test at the International College (Studienkolleg) in Germany.

You must select your personal UEQ from the applicant portal. You will find help for completion of the UEQ and a sub-classification here.

What do I need to note for dual study programmes?

In some degree programmes, a dual study programme is possible.

To enrol in a dual study programme, you must have concluded a corresponding training contract or internship contract (depending on the study programme) before applying. Please note the requirements of the respective dual study programme.

In the case of training-integrated degree programmes, a longer practical phase is usually completed as part of the training contract before enrolment at the university.

You can find more information on the documents to be submitted under the menu item Checklists.

Semester fee

You find information of the current semester fee here.

Will I be reimbursed when I do not take up the study place?

If you cannot be accepted, e.g. because your UEQ does not entitle you to study at the HS Trier or you decide in favour of another study place, you will get your money back.

Even if you wish to cancel your enrolment, you will receive part of the money back, provided that this is done by 31 March for the summer semester and by 30 September for the winter semester. If a student ID card has already been issued, the amount for the card (23 €) cannot be refunded and in any case a fee of 25 € will be retained for processing the waiver of study place for degree programmes without admission restrictions and 45 € for degree programmes with admission restrictions.

If you cancel your study place at a later date, a refund is no longer possible.

To apply for a refund, please use the refund application form.
