Hey everyone
I'm just gonna make this real quick and simple cuz I want an answer quite soon.


Basically, I am hoping to study medicine in Germany and to do so I know all the requirements.. Language, academic, visa (since I am not an EU national).. And so on.


What I really wanna know is that if it's possible to get accepted in Germany for medicine with A level grades of BCC. I know most of u will think "what kind of dumb question is that" but I know some people who studied in Germany medicine with moderate grades (which mine are considered not high or low). However, these people didn't do A levels but a national baccalaureate in my country and went directly there.


And another question too..
Does anyone know about the abitur or A level requirements to study civil engineering in TU Munchen (Munich) or Stuttgart Uni?


Thanks a lot guys for your help.

I highly doubt it. Most universities require a German Abitur grade of at least 1.2 which is basically something around A*A*A, provided you got the right subjects for the degree.

In Germany A-levels are not that well regarded as they don't offer a great range of subjects, in contrast Germans usually study something around 10 subjects in their last year, therefore universities concentrate on the overall grade which in some cases my be a bit lower if that is compensated by high grades in subjects relevant for the subject of study (in medicine maths, chemistry, biology etc.). As A-levels mostly consist of only three subjects in Germany they only gain you access to degree programs which are related to your subjects.

In order to get your A-levels acknowledged you would have to contact some official authority of which I have forgotten the name. As far as I know you also need at least one language among your A-levels in order to gain access to German universities, at least in the state of Northrhine-Westphalia for which I have checked the requirements. At the same time your subjects have to be 'allgemeinbildend', meaning equivalents are offered at German schools. Subjects like Photography, General Studies etc. will therefore most likely not be counted.

This said, I highly doubt that BCC will get you into medicine in Germany.

International Office der Technischen Universität München

Stuttgart should have something similar. But again, Germany is different from the UK. Before you can start any kind of application you have to get your foreign certificate approved and checked for eligibility of access to German institutions of higher education.

Hi, I have a similar situation to you. I wanted to know if you got into medicine with A-levels, and if you did how did the whole thing go? I'd be grateful for your reply.

I know you can get admitted with A levels but I'm not so sure about the required grades. Did you already finish your A levels? Did you apply?
