What if my High School Degree is not recognized?
Depending on your secondary school leaving certificate you will either get a direct or an indirect university admission. If your degree certificate is not recognized, you are then given an indirect admission. This means that you will need to participate in our Pre-Semester. The Pre-Semester (Start: August) is an eight-week preparatory course in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry as well as English.
Important information for German citizens with a foreign school-leaving qualification!
Did you attend a school abroad and obtain a school-leaving qualification there? Or did you study at an International School in Germany?
In this case, you need to get your transcript evaluated as equivalent to a school-leaving certificate in the state of Baden-Württemberg. The approved document is required for the winter semester enrollment at the Carl Benz School of Engineering/KIT. Please contact the Regional Council, the so-called „Regierungspräsidium“, in Stuttgart for further information here.
