If you wish to apply for a dual study programme, the first step is to take the selection test. After passing the selection process, you can then apply to the partner companies, who will then proceed with their own selection procedure.

The selection test

Together with the participating partner companies, the NORDAKADEMIE has drawn up a common selection procedure for the students in the various disciplines. The selection procedure includes:

  • providing the grades from the last four school reports (German/Maths/English)
  • a personality test
  • a test of basic knowledge in the subject of the specific programme
  • an English test
  • a Mathematics test
  • an intelligence structure test and a motivation test 

Before you do 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 procedure. 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 test and will see whether you were successful or not.
