Candidates are also required to prove that in their home country, they meet the qualification requirements for a higher education program (Hochschulzugangsberechtigung, short: HZB) in order to participate. If an applicant has a direct HZB, they cann attend the German courses, if they have an indirect HZB, the can attend the preparatory courses.
