college entrance qualification


Explanation:
graduation from Fachoberschule instead of grammar school (Gymnasium).

The Fachhochschule is the most recent but increasingly attractive type of higher education institution, which offers highly practice-related study courses of a scientific nature (leading to a Diplom), especially in engineering, business administration, design, agriculture, social work, and youth and community work.
Today nearly every third new student enrolls at a Fachhochschule, whose standard period of study is shorter than that of the universities.
