After completion of the bridge program, students from most of the overseas countries are required to pass an assessment test in order to get admission into a German institution for the equivalent of the Bachelors degree. However, there is an exemption of taking this assessment test to students who have cleared some of the prestigious entrance examinations of their home country.
