Qualified working people : Trial studies

A person can start a trial course of studies when he/she has successfully completed a vocational training regulated by state or federal law and has worked full time in the profession for at least three years.

A trial course of studies covers two semesters and after its successful completion the student has thus proven his suitability to study the chosen major.
