You must prove your knowledge of the English language by means of:

You must submit the test result no later than two months after the start of classes. Only the above-mentioned tests are possible for proof of English.

The validity of language tests is limited to two years from the date of issue.

Appropriate stays abroad can replace language tests, whereby equivalence is decided on a case-by-case basis. A certificate of achievement from the foreign university must be presented here, showing that the academic achievements were completed in English.

Applicants must prove their suitability and motivation in an interview, if the head of the program considers this necessary.
