Recognition of foreign degrees

I have a master´s degree from a foreign country, can I still be enrolled in a PhD programme in Germany?

The most important formal requirement is a master's degree (or equivalent), that is recognised in Germany. 

In order to successfully apply for a PhD position or PhD programme, other important factors include your work experience and your motivation.
