When it was decided to establish a new sector in higher education, the Coalition Government declared that the new sector should also enrol graduates from apprenticeship training. Therefore, for Fachhochschule courses, a more open access policy than for universities was laid down by law. The main route to universities is via graduation from a higher secondary school.
