Which resident status do I need for studying?
There are no legal specifications that would exclude recognized asylum seekers from beginning their studies. The same applies to a person whose asylum procedure has not yet been completed or who has got an uncertain residential status (Duldungsstatus).
You do not need a work permit (Beschäftigungserlaubnis) to start studying. However, the residential status is important for financial support. Please contact Studentenwerk for further information.
Are there any prerequisites?
The admission to study programmes at HTWK Leipzig is restricted. Meaning that only so many applicants can be accepted as there are available spots in the respective study programme. Spots are allotted according to grade point average. Please check here for information on the selection process (content in German).
