Kühne Logistics University

No entry to the German higher education system? Prepare yourself with KLU!

As the German Abitur (high school leaving certificate) is held to such a high standard, it is often quite difficult for international applicants to meet the equivalent. With international high school diplomas, direct entry is usually not an option. In order to bridge the gap, KLU offers students the opportunity to complete our Preparation Program at our partner institution in Berlin.
