Various institutes in Germany offer integration courses for professionals with foreign qualifications and offer preparatory courses for the knowledge test.
For example, Medical professions with foreign qualifications from non-EU who wish to work without any restrictions in the medical field in Germany need a state licence called Approbation. One can apply for an Approbation from different authorities in Germany who will assess the equivalence of your qualifications with the corresponding German qualifications. Once your profession has been recognised, you will be granted an Approbation to start practising as a doctor in Germany. Read more about all you need to know about Practicing as A Doctor in Germany
