Admission and enrolment
When you have been admitted to studies at FHWS and confirmed your admission via the FHWS Application Portal, the letter of admission and a letter for declaring your acceptance will become available there. You will also be asked to enter additional information into the FHWS Application Portal (e.g. information regarding your health insurance or authorising the SEPA Direct Debit Mandate) and upload a passport photo.
Please print the declaration of acceptance, sign it, and submit it together with all required documents to the Department of Student Affairs (HSST) - either by mail or in person during the office hours.
In the letter of admission, you will also be asked to enrol in person at a certain time (usually one or two weeks before the semester starts). This means that you have to go to the HSST member of staff responsible for your degree programme during their office hours, present your ID card or passport, and show the certificates on which your admission is based either as originals or as certified copies.
If HSST has seen and confirmed all required documents and, in the meantime, you paid the semester fee, you will receive your FHWS Card and are thus officially enrolled.
In addition to possessing a higher education entrance qualification (if applying for a bachelor’s programme) or a bachelor’s certificate (if applying for a master’s programme), you will have to prove German language proficiency (applies to international applicants in particular) and/or English language or other foreign language proficiency (applies mainly for English-taught degree programmes) in order to be enrolled. On the following pages, but also on the information sheet available from the form centre, you will find more about language requirements.

Specifics for the English-taught Bachelor's programme Robotics:
Applicants with a higher education entrance qualification acquired outside the EU require the scholastic aptitude test TestAS (exceptions: graduates of a Studienkolleg as well as graduates of German schools in non-European countries leaving school with an Abitur).
TestAS involves completing the Core Test as well as the subject specific Engineering Module. In both parts, a standard value of 100 is assumed in order to enrol. For more information about registering and completing TestAS, please refer to the TestAS website.
