Non-Degree Program Students

As a non-degree program student you are entitled to attend individual courses in academic subjects. As you are not enrolled in a degree program, however, it is not possible to earn a degree as a non-degree program student.

Credit for examinations passed as a non-degree program student can only be transferred towards a degree program if they were completed BEFORE completing a secondary school leaving examination or a university entrance qualification examination (Studienberechtigungsprüfung).
