If you wish to apply for admission in one of our study programmes, a so-called duales Studium, the first step in the process is to take the selection tests of NORDAKADEMIE. After passing the selection tests, you can then apply for a placement at the partner companies, who will then proceed with their own selection procedure.

The selection tests

Together with our partner companies, the NORDAKADEMIE has drawn up a common admission process for the students in the various disciplines. The selection tests include:

  • providing the grades from the last four school reports (German or your mother tongue/Maths/English)
  • a personality test
  • a motivation test
  • a cognitive test
  • an English test
  • a Mathematics test

Before you start the test, you should ensure that you are able to concentrate and will not be disturbed. The whole test takes about 2 ½ hours.

No individual test or assignment leads to failure of the selection tests. Only if you “knock over” a whole series of hurdles, will you fail. You will be able to download a pdf of your results two to three working days after you have completed the tests and will see whether you were successful or not.
