Programme objectives

With the entry into force of the German Closed Substance Cycle Waste Management Act on 24.02.2012, waste management has now fundamentally changed into closed-cycle management in which waste generation and waste management are carried out with particular attention to the sparing use of natural resources and protection of people and the environment. In particular, graduates will have acquired competence in the fields of waste prevention, waste utilisation and waste treatment.

Admission requirements

A higher education entrance qualification is a general prerequisite for admittance to the programme of study. International applicants must provide proof of educational qualifications that permit study in Germany (school-leaving certificate, certificate of university attendance). The anabin database provides information about the validation of foreign educational qualifications.

The language of instruction is German. Foreign applicants must prove they have adequate knowledge of German. Evidence of the necessary German language skills can be provided in the form of:

  • the ‘Kleines Deutsches Sprachdiplom’ or ‘Großes Deutsches Sprachdiplom’, or
  • the Goethe Institute’s ‘Zentrale Oberstufenprüfung’
  • the ‘Sprachdiplom der Kultusministerkonferenz Stufe II’ or
  • the ‘deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang (DSH Stufe 2)’, or
  • ‘TestDaF, (minimun 16 total points and level 3 in the examination modules) or
  • ‘TELC Deutsch C1 Hochschule’ or
  • proof of having passed the entrance examination at a preparatory college.


Applicants who are unable to fulfil the specified admission requirements may contact a preparatory college (‘Studienkolleg’). These specifically prepare foreign applicants for a course of study in Germany. Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences does not have its own preparatory college. The state-run preparatory college responsible for our institution is located at Anhalt University of Applied Sciences in Köthen.
