University Admissions and Applications

The area of University Admissions and Applications assists and supports students in Grades 11 and 12 who are taking their next step into higher education here in Germany or further afield.  This assistance continues for recent graduates of LIS, especially those who have not been able to take the next steps in their final year of school and need support after their graduation.
