Even if you have studied for a while in your home country, you still have to apply for admission to a degree course at the German institution of your choice.

Eligibility Criteria For Admissions In Germany Universities

Typically, if candidates intend to apply for an undergraduate degree, they require a school leaving certificate or a secondary education qualification equivalent to that of Germany. It will be evaluated by the Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Federal State.

The entrance requirements are granted in Germany on the basis of previous years' academic record. However, management courses may require GMAT and engineering, a GRE score.
