Preparation for studying at DHBW

Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University Heidenheim is running a program called “Bridge Year”. Our Bridge Year will help international students to get prepared for studying in Germany at DHBW (Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg - Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University).

In order to study at DHBW as a foreign student you need to provide

  • proof of German language skills,
  • a school graduation certificate/diploma equivalent to the German “Abitur”
  • and a training contract with one of our cooperating companies.

During the Bridge Year Program we will provide you with the necessary language training and support you in the application procedure for a training contract.


About the program

  • DHBW Heidenheim´s Bridge Year Program lasts one year and prepares international students for a Bachelor´s degree program at DHBW.
  • The program is directed at foreign students with little or no knowledge of the German language.
  • Those completing the program will be able to pass the official German language proficiency test (telc), one of the requirements to study at DHBW as a foreign student.

Please note the deadline.
