We are a network of all public universities in the state of Brandenburg that enables international students to obtain a university entrance qualification.
"Erfolgreicher Studieneinstieg für Internationale Studierende im Bundesland Brandenburg" (ESiSt) is a network of all public colleges and universities in the federal state of Brandenburg that helps give international prospective students the opportunity to obtain a language and subject-related university entrance qualification. The ESiSt university entrance qualification is accepted by all institutions which are members of the ESiSt network.
Similar to a preparatory college, the preparatory courses and entrance examinations are aimed at prospective students with university entrance qualifications that are not recognised as equivalent in Germany. The courses are aimed at applicants with degrees that meet the professional requirements for admission to higher education but who do not have the required language proficiency.
ESiSt enables these target groups to study a bachelor's degree course at the network's colleges and universities after they have attended language and/or specialised courses and successfully passed the university entrance examinations.
Furthermore, the network provides organisational support for prospective students and integrative measures on site at the respective university locations. The course programmes usually run for one or two semesters.
