What can I expect from the bachelor's degree program? How does the study aptitude test work? Which master's program is best for me? If you need assistance or answers to these questions, the counselling service for prospective students is the place to go.
The HPI student advisors provide insights into the study program and consult individually during consultation hours. Receiving help is also possible via e-mail or on study information days. We recommend that you read our FAQs (German only!) for answers to the most frequently asked questions.
Information for international students
The entire bachelor’s program is conducted in German. Proof of sufficient German language skills is therefore required. If you do not have German citizenship, you must provide proof of your German language skills (DSH2/C1 level) by the time of enrollment at latest.
Beside the German-speaking bachelor and master programs, the Hasso Plattner Institute offers two English-speaking Master degrees for international students: Software Systems Engineering and Digital Health.
Feel free to approach us (contacts below) with your questions. The International Office of the University of Potsdam may also be a valuable contact for international students regarding e.g., visa issues, costs, acceptance of obtained German language certificates, etc. Check out the Advising and Services of the International Office for more support regarding housing, scholarships, buddy programs and much more.
