Apply for admission to a comprehensive school


Pupils in years 5 to 12 or 13 are taught at the comprehensive school.

You can obtain the following school-leaving qualifications at the comprehensive school:

  • Hauptschulabschluss
  • Realschulabschluss
  • Abitur

Years 10 to 12 or 11 to 13 are run as a grammar school. The comprehensive school provides a general and vocational education and enables students to specialize according to their achievements and inclinations. This specialization enables pupils to continue their education at a university or in vocational or study-qualifying courses.

It is conducted in an integrative or cooperative form.

Cooperative form:

The comprehensive school in cooperative form combines the secondary school and the grammar school in educational and organizational terms. From Year 5 onwards, you will be taught in classes specific to the school form and in inter-form learning groups. The school form-specific lessons predominate. At the cooperative comprehensive school, you will receive the Abitur after 12 years.

Integrative form:
The integrative form of comprehensive school offers all qualifications in a differentiated teaching system. In an integrative comprehensive school, you do not have to decide on a type of school in advance. Years 7 to 10 are taught as a class. The number of subjects increases with the grades. The courses are formed according to the performance and inclination of the pupils. From year 9 onwards, you can choose a grammar school branch. At the integrative comprehensive school, you will receive the Abitur after 13 years.
