Up-to-date information for students from abroad in connection with the Corona virus

The Studentenwerk Dresden, Dept. International, has provided us with important information (PDF 395 kB) for students arriving from a high-risk area.

You can find more information, especially on the behaviour in the dormitories, on the website of the Studentenwerk Dresden.


Incoming - international students at Berufsakademie Sachsen

Cooperative (Bachelor's) degree programs at Berufsakademie Sachsen are also open to prospective students from abroad. No matter whether you are interested in an exchange semester, an internship or a complete degree program: You are most welcome!

In the following you will find all relevant information.

 

Admission requirements/language requirements

For prospective foreign students there is an information sheet (PDF 178 kB) (PDF 1.46 MB), which deals with the language requirements, the question of recognition of degrees obtained abroad and residence permits. The Saxon State Ministry of the Interior (SMI) provides information on residence permits for students in cooperative degree programs.

 

In addition to the usual admission requirements, registered refugees must

  • prove their status as "registered refugee", and
  • take a TestAS test if documents relating to degrees obtained abroad cannot be presented. TestAS does not replace the required language tests (usually at level C1). In individual cases, the responsible examination board has the final decision.

TestAS is a central, standardised academic admission test. Berufsakademie Sachsen does not issue TestAS certificates. TestAS exams can be taken at certified test centers.

"Registered refugees" include the following persons:

  • persons with BÜMA/proof of arrival (notification of asylum application prior to application pursuant to § 63a AsylG)
  • asylum seekers (ongoing proceeding - residence permit according to § 55 AsylVfG)
  • tolerated persons (temporary suspension of deportation - toleration according to § 60a AufenthG)
  • persons entitled to asylum according to art. 16a GG/GFK (residence according to § 25 para. 1 AufenthG)- anerkannte Flüchtlinge gem. § 3 AsylVfG (Aufenthalt gem. § 25 Abs. 2 S. 1/1. AufenthG)
  • persons entitled to subsidiary protection according to § 4 AsylVfG (residence according to § 25 Abs. 2 S. 1/2. AufenthG)
  • persons with protection against deportation according to § 60 Abs. 5 and 7 AufenthG (residence according to § 25 Abs. 3 AufenthG)

The SMWKT (Saxon Ministry for Science, Arts and Tourism) provides general information on studying in Saxony for refugee students in English (PDF 564 kB) (PDF 564 kB), Arabic (PDF 610 kB) (PDF 610 kB) and Farsi (PDF 602 kB) (PDF 602 kB) (Persian).

 

Enrollment

If you would like to enroll in one of our cooperative degree programs at Berufsakademie Sachsen, you will find information on formal and personal requirements and precise instructions on how to study with us on the pages of the respective study academy under "Before commencing your studies".

 

ECTS

The European Credit Transfer System ECTS was introduced in 1989 as part of ERASMUS. It is the only credit system that has been successfully tested and is used throughout Europe. The assessment of the student's performance will continue to be documented by a locally awarded grade based on the German grading scale from 1 to 5, with 1 being the highest grade. This grade is supplemented by an ECTS grade. This supplement is indispensable in the case of credit transfers. However, it is also recommended for the mere accumulation of credits, as it provides information on the relative performance of the student(s) and should also be included in the Diploma Supplement. Since the ECTS grade is a relative grade and there is no fixed conversion into the German grading system, the following table (PNG 44 kB) (PNG 44 kB) is merely a non-binding orientation.

 

Living at our locations

The topic of "housing" is regulated differently at our seven locations; some of our study academies have their own halls of residence, some are affiliated to the local Studentenwerk (Student Services) and use its services, and some have contracts with local providers.

Health insurance

Health insurance is compulsory in Germany. However, conditions, rates and reimbursement of costs can differ greatly. You should therefore obtain information as early as possible and look for a suitable health insurance. If you do not have proof of health insurance, it is not possible to enroll at a university. You can find a list of all statutory health insurance companies here.

There are also numerous private health insurance companies in Germany. However, they are often considerably more expensive. In addition, it is difficult to switch to a statutory health insurance company once you are privately insured.

Social security agreements exist with some countries (including EU member states). This means that the insurance from your home country can be recognized in Germany. Please consult your health insurance company to find out which documents you need for recognition.

If you have decided to take up a complete cooperative degree program at Berufsakademie Sachsen, your practice partner will in any case insure you in the statutory health insurance scheme.
