GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
German term or phrase:
Business High School (University Entrance Qualification)
German to English translations [PRO] Social Sciences - Education / Pedagogy / Ausbildung
German term or phrase:gymnasialer Zweig
In a cv the person attended a Höheren Handelsschuhe-a commercial college or school but with "Gymnasialer Zweig" maybe "associated/affiliated/parallel to a grammar school?
Those are some ideas I have I have no feeling that one is better or worse than another. What does anyone else think? Can anyone explain where there is a 1 after Handelschuhe? All suggestions appreciated.
Here is the full sentence:
Abitur an der Höheren Handelsschule I
Explanation: Früher konnte man an einer höheren Handelsschule das Abitur (Hochschulzugangsberechtigung) machen - vergleichbar mit dem heutigen Abitur an einem Wirtschaftsgymnasium (nach der Schulreform). Vorraussetzung zum Besuch eines Colleges ist das Abitur. Siehe auch Link: http://www.fembio.org/english/biography.php/woman/biography/...
This is onyl the second time in kudoz that I have chosen an alternative solution to a line of "agrees"-wished some people agreed this solution I'm choosing but my instincts are against "university preparatory branch" it sounds so unlikely and stilted-Business High School rings entirely true. I'll go for it. Thanks to all of you for your help. 3 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: I don't know what the I stands for in Höhere Handelsschule I. It wouldn't be Einjährige Höhere Handelsschule für Abiturienten because according to the information below, this is for students who already have their Abitur.
Einjährige Höhere Handelsschule für Abiturienten
1-year full-time commercial course for students with German university or higher education entrance qualifications or the equivalent.
Zweijährige Höhere Handelsschule
2-year full-time commercial course for students without Germany university or higher education entrance qualifications (i.e. without "Abitur" or "Fachhochschulreife" / A-levels / high school diploma / baccalauréat etc.).
Students who have successfully completed this course are ready to apply for a traineeship or a permanent post in commerce. They are also awarded the German Class 12 School Leaving Qualification entitling them to attend a higher education course at a university of applied sciences (Fachhochschule).
