So I'm not sure you can convert your qualifications into another country's qualifications. But what IALs are of the same standard as the German Abitur in the European Qualification Framework

So I *think* you'll apply to the uni in Germany with your international A Levels and they should be able to judge what it is equivalent too.
However, :tsr2: is a UK based site and we don't have many experts in the systems overseas. For the horse's mouth answer, you could contact a university in Germany directly.

@Saracen's Fez may be able to offer further assistance.

Hi, I'm a bit confused do you have a university and subject in mind in Germany?

Generally you will apply to your German uni with your international A-level qualifications but if the German uni has an entry requirement for your course then you may need to know how your grades compare to the Abitur mark that they're requiring.

If this information isn't forthcoming on the uni's website, it might be worth contacting whoever in the uni's International Office is responsible for incoming students.

If you can speak German (or want to try using machine translation!) then there's more info on (generic) entry requirements here to get the Hochschulzugangsberechtigung (university entrance): https://anabin.kmk.org/no_cache/filter/schulabschluesse-mit-hochschulzugang.html
