Look for the university you graduated from in the given list.

You can get an idea if your qualification is recognised by looking at Status. If it’s H +, then your qualification is very likely to be recognised. If it’s H +/-, then you will need to send in your application for review. The German university you apply to might, or might not offer you a place.

If the institution of higher education you graduated from has the status H -, then your qualification is not recognised by German universities.
