Studienkolleg NRW


The Hochschule Fresenius studienkolleg nrw at the Cologne campus assists in the preparation of prospective international students who are not qualified to apply directly for university admission in Germany. If the candidates have the necessary qualifications in their home country and have successfully completed the studienkolleg nrw selection process, participation in the “German Education Gate” program will enable them to take the German university entrance examination (“Feststellungsprüfung”) within nine months. Cologne District Government (Bezirksregierung Köln) has commissioned Hochschule Fresenius to conduct the state-recognized German university entrance examination. After the prospective candidates have passed the examination, they can apply for any degree course in Germany. Already during the program, the students are closely integrated at Hochschule Fresenius and in student life.

The studienkolleg nrw makes a major contribution to internationalizing the COGNOS Group, as the preparatory programs assist in attracting students from abroad to the COGNOS university network.
