Application procedure changes due to the coronavirus

Due to the ongoing corona pandemic we now also accept applications by email.

Send your complete application documents by email scan to apply.eeb@elektrotechnik.hs-mannheim.de.

The deadline for email applications is 15 May for non EU-citizen.

By 15 July we then also need your complete application by post, best by courier service.

If some required documents are missing due to cancelled test dates, closed schools or delayed exams, please indicate the next available test date on your application form and attach your test registration slip if available.

The deadline for submitting your missing documents is 15 July for non-EU citizen.

For EU citizen our application deadline is 15 July.


Eligible to apply?  Check whether your school qualifications can lead to direct access to our international BSc programme or whether you would need additional academic experience or additional tests to be eligible to apply with us. Check here .

Studienkolleg  Applicants from some countries require additional academic experience on top of their higher education entrance qualification. They need to attend a certain number of semesters in a Bachelor course in engineering in their home country or alternatively they can complete a Studienkolleg in Germany prior to their application to Hochschule Mannheim. Information on Studienkolleg in Germany can be found at studienkollegs.de

SAT  If your school leaving certificate isn´t available within our application time period you could apply with a SAT or ACT test score and later submit your school leaving certificate. Subject tests in maths and physics can also support your application. SAT information with international test dates and test centers can be found at collegereadiness.collegeboard.org

Arrival day of your application  Your complete application must reach our office by 15 May if you live outside EU or by presumably 15 July if you are an EU citizen.

English language skills needed  Proof of sufficient English language skills is one of the admission prerequisites (for example TOEFL - paper-based minimum 550, computer-based minimum 213, 80 (IBT); IELTS minimum 6.0). Students who have studied for at least one year with English as the medium of instruction need to include proof of this in their application and do not need any other certification.

Multitude of applications each year  Due to the multitude of applications we receive each year, and as the number of students to be admitted is restricted, applicants should have a very good school-leaving or university graduation grade.

We cannot consider an application unless it is complete  Please note that due to university admission regulations we cannot consider an application unless it is complete. Your application has to contain all of the following items:

  • a completed and signed application form
  • one passport photo
  • a curriculum vitae
  • Motivational letter of maximum one A 4 page
    Why do you want to study electrical engineering?
    What are your specific talents or interests?
    What is your motivation for studying in Germany?
    Why Mannheim?
    Which skills and what knowledge do you want to gain by studying with us?
  • certified copy of original certification of your academic qualifications
  • at least one reference letter from your teacher or professor
  • proof of English language competence

We only accept applications by post  Please only send notarised copies and no originals. There will be no return of application documents. We only accept applications by post, best by courier service, as we are unable to accept applications by e-mail. Applicants from Bulgaria may apply with the certificate of winter semester of the 12th class.
