Official semester starts on October, 1st of each year. Any queries regarding detailed information on study programs, enrollment in the chosen degree program, curriculum or any other relevant academic information should be addressed directly to the respective DHBW location.
Should you meet the formal admission requirements, you will need to conclude a training contract with a workplace training provider. Enrollment at the university is only possible after a training contract with a workplace training provider has been signed. For a list of current DHBW cooperation partners please contact the respective DHBW location.

The Central International Office of the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University cannot provide any assistance in finding a workplace training provider. Indeed, the dual studies concept incorporates the idea that prospective students prove their ability to act independently by dealing with the admission procedures of workplace training providers on their own. 
An applicant is considered to be enrolled at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University upon submission of the following documents:

  • University entry qualification certificate (Bescheinigung über die Hochschulzugangsberechtigung) issued by the Central International Office of the DHBW

It has to be verified that applicants are formally eligible for studying at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University. The certificate shall be issued upon successful verification of the applicant's foreign academic credentials.

  • Study and workplace training contract concluded with the workplace training provider (signed by both parties)
  • Administration fee payment proof

The administration fee of EUR 80.00 is to be transferred to the respective university / DHBW location upon conclusion of the study and workplace training contract. For further details, please contact the respective DHBW location.
