Indicating a higher education entrance qualification (Hochschulzulassungsberechtigung, HZB) is mandatory for any applicant that is submitting a central application. If you have not yet received your higher education entrance qualification and do not yet know your average grade but already want to submit an application, please enter the value of 9,9 into the data field provided for the average grade. As soon as you know your actual average grade, please change the value indicated in the course of the application phase.
Please note that it may become necessary to submit documents to the higher education institution again in order to reconfirm your electronic data. The respective higher education institution will be pleased to give you further information.
Please note additionally, that you may enter more than one higher education entrance qualification (for example, if you have achieved various higher education entrance qualifications with regard to various German states as a person being professionally qualified).
As soon as a HZB is recorded in the application portal, a unique higher education entrance qualification ID (HZB-ID) is generated concerning this qualification. If you have achieved more than one HZB, each recorded HZB will be assigned its own HZB-ID.
You have to enter further information for each individual application, as needed. In case this is of relevance for your desired course of study, you specify half-year grades or periods of internships in the application portal, for example.
