Opportunities for studying bachelor’s degree in English in Germany

How is it even possible when one has a national certificate of higher secondary education completed under a state or central board of a country like India?
German universities accept national certificate holders with the condition that they attend a foundation/preparatory course before the commencement of their degree studies! But most studienkollegs, state-funded or privately owned, offer the foundation programme in the medium of German language instruction!
