Requirements for Taking the Feststellungsprüfung (FSP)/Ergänzungsprüfung (Supplementary Exam)

If you have an indirekte Hochschulzugangsberechtigung (HZB) (indirect university admission), you can take the FSP (or a Ergänzungsprüfung after passing an FSP) at our Studienkolleg. To do so, you must meet the following requirements.

  • You have a current provisory pre-admission/pre-registration to study at a university in Saxony.
  • You have sent the corresponding application form to our Studienkolleg and have been admitted by us to take the FSP/Ergänzungsprüfung.
  • You have paid the corresponding exam fee.
    The cost of exam fees is outlined in the Hochschulgebühren- und Entgeltordnung der Universität Leipzig (page 19, section 28/19, point 3) and amounts to:

               - Feststellungsprüfung - 400,00 Euro

               - Ergänzungsprüfung - 75,00 Euro (per subject)

Pre-admission for first-time participation in an FSP/Ergänzungsprüfung

First-time applicants for the FSP / Ergänzungsprüfung receive provisory admission to the study program from the International Centre of Leipzig University or from the International Office of another Saxon university or college. 
With this in mind, please do not contact the Studienkolleg Sachsen or the service point uni-assist e.V. with any application questions. Rather, please direct these questions to the staff of the relevant International Office of the university of your choice.
