A Bachelor's programme results in an initial professional university qualification in Germany. If you have not yet graduated from a German university, you must apply for a Bachelor's programme even if you aim to attain a Master's.
A prerequisite for starting a Master's programme is an initial professional university qualification (e.g. Bachelor of Science, Diplom (FH)).
If you cannot find the Joint Master's programmes that TUHH offers in cooperation with other universities on the list, you can find information on how to apply for one of these programmes here.
German "Abitur" also includes the German "Meister" (master craftsman) qualification as per the German Crafts Code, as well as the "Fachwirt" (business management specialist) qualification and other vocational qualifications as per the German Vocational Training Act. The Hamburg Higher Education Act (HmbHG) contains more precise information on this. If you have qualifications from a trade and technical school (Fachschule) and have passed an aptitude test as per section 38 Hamburg Higher Education Act (HmbHG), please select "yes".
The German "Abitur" is the general higher education entrance qualification in the Federal Republic of Germany; it is gained at a state school in the Federal Republic of Germany. If you gained the 'classic' German "Abitur" at a school in Germany ("Gymnasium" or "Gesamtschule"), please select "yes". If you attended a German school in another country and gained a German higher education entrance qualification there, please select "yes". You must select "no" if, for example, you have completed the university qualification assessment examination following a German foundation course ("Feststellungsprüfung Studienkolleg") or if you attained an International Baccalaureate in Germany.
This includes all degrees gained at a university within the scope of the German constitution. If, for example, you have a double degree (German and foreign university, Chinese-German University of Applied Sciences (CDHAW) or similar), please select "no".
