Certificates of recognition

If you have completed your higher education entrance qualification abroad, you will need a certificate of recognition before applying to HHN. Please take care of the recognition of your certificates as early as possible. The certificate of recognition must be received by HHN by the application deadline (15.01./15.07).

Applicants for Bachelor's and Master's programmes in Medical Informatics ("Medizinische Informatik") are obliged to comply with different regulations (see below).

Study applicants with international certificates must first register with the 

Center for International Students

for a certificate of recognition for free.

The Center for International Students is the central point of contact for those interested in universities of applied science in Baden-Württemberg with regard to advice, certificate recognition and German examinations.

Please take care of the recognition of your certificates as early as possible. The certificate of recognition must be received by the HHN by the application deadline (15.01./15.07.). Please note that the center for International Students has an average processing time of four weeks.

Your application can only be considered if all required documents (including the certification of the Center for International Students) reached Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences on the due date (January 15 for the summer semester and July 15 for the winter semester). Please note that theses are cut-off periods. In individual cases, recognition from uniasstist can also be accepted, provided that this has already been done.
