      Hi, you must first complete your 12th grade/senior secondary education with at least 50% marks. Secondly, you must learn the German language in your country until you achieve B2-level communication skills.

      Nursing studies through Ausbildung is on-the-job learning; hence the students/participants get a monthly stipend for the entire three-year duration of the programme.

      Generally, Ausbildung nursing students get at least 1200.EUR per month as a stipend.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I’m Nishadi from Sri Lanka. I have more than 5 years of work experience as a registered nursing officer.
    Further, I graduated with BSc in Nursing and MBA from CCCU, UK.

    I have already done 15 standards care certificate courses from IANS, UK.
    Police clearance and TB test were already received.
    I have done the UKVI IELTS Academic. So, I’m looking for a nursing or senior caregiver position with sponsorship. If I’m not eligible for the mentioned job position, how can I study MSc Nursing In Germany? but I didn’t achieve language proficiency yet.
    kindly request to consider my request.

    Thank You

      MSc nursing or any similar master’s degree suits your current and previous background. Of course, you need to sit and pass the IELTS academic module test and score at least 6.5 overall to meet the language criteria.

      You may scan your qualifications and forward them to [email protected] while you prepare to sit the language tests etc.

    Dear Catherine,

    To apply for BSc nursing, one must pass 12th grade with at least 50%.
    You need to attend a foundation course of one year in Germany before applying for admission to a BSc nursing program.

    Whereas 12th passed with B2 level German will qualify for an Ausbildung Nursing programme, an apprenticeship for three years.
    The attendees get a monthly stipend for the entire program duration.

      Hi, if you have completed a nursing diploma and are a registered nurse in your country, you may learn the German language and apply for training leading to a nursing job after six months.

      If that’s not your case and you wish to train in nursing in Germany through Ausbildung/apprenticeship training you should have passed the senior secondary school education and B1/B2 German language test passed certificate to apply.

      If your subject group was Biology-Chemistry-Physics, apart from other subsidiary subjects and languages, it is still possible to apply for a BSc nursing program in Germany.
      If the marks in the above three subjects are at least 50% per subject, the chances for a BSc in Nursing in Germany will improve.

    I´m interested in Dual Studium program in Bsc. Nursing science. I´m planning to do further masters and Phd after i finish it, it´s possible right? also i want to know if we need a block account for Dual Studium and the duration? Maximum date to handover my C1 Goethe Zertifikat, if I´m planning to start on September? Please kindly mention your guidance fee too.
    Thank you.

    1. Avatar of KCR CONSULTANTS

      Dear Seleni,

      The requirements to study nursing in Germany are 12th grade passed under a national curriculum and at least one year of BSc nursing studies at a university in your country or wherever you reside, in addition to a C1 level in German.
      Suppose you want to go with your 12th-grade high school qualification alone. In that case, you must start with a Medical Foundation Year in Germany before finally being accepted to a BSc nursing degree program.
      In this case, you can go to Germany and start attending the language course to continue learning from whatever level of language you have while arriving in Germany.

      If you have followed the Cambridge curriculum and have A-Levels completed in the relevant subjects, you need C1 level German language to meet the requirements to study nursing in Germany.

        Thank you.
