Before you can enroll at THM, you must have achieved at least a DSH-2 or equivalent certificate.
An overview of the certificates accepted at THM can be found here.
The THM cooperates with the Justus Liebig University of Giessen (JLU) and offers German courses from C1 to the DSH exam for international prospective students and applicants. You will receive an invitation to the preparation course for the DSH exam.
FOUNDATION COURSE ("STUDIENKOLLEG")
If your home certificates do not qualify you for direct university admission at the THM, you can acquire the subject-related prerequisites for a degree course by attending the "Studienkolleg" (Foundation course) with the final exam "Feststellungsprüfung".
International applicants of the THM attend the Studienkolleg Mittelhessen. You have courses in Giessen or Marburg depending on your course.
There are different Studienkollegs in Germany, you can also apply there. Please inform yourself.
The enrolment is the final step before you can begin your studies.
After you have received a study place, you will be informed via the applicant portal E-Campus which documents you still have to send to the THM by mail.
Now you must:
- register with a statutory health health insurance company and inform them that you would like to enroll at the THM University of Applied Sciences (THM)
- pay the current semester fee
Only applicants who have been admitted through E-Campus will be asked to send additional documents by mail.
- Copy of your passport
- Application for enrolment (from the portal)
- If not already done: Your DSH-2 German language certificate. An overview of the certificates accepted at THM can be found here.
