You must either have the German "Fachhochschulreife" or its equivalent - e.g. qualifications such as the International Baccalaureate or the English "A" levels. As a rule this requires the successful completion of 12 - 13 years of school education in your home country. From some countries you also need to have begun or even completed further studies.
Applicants with questions as to the acceptability of their school certificates can - if they have a little German - get help from: anabin
Just select your country and then take it from there.
Of course, you can also send us copies of your certificates from school and prior study and our International Office will advise you. We need these certificates anyway when you make a formal application and we need to see the originals before you can be enrolled.
As the degree is taught in English you need to have reached level Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) level B2.
As proof of this we will accept any of the following:
Cambridge Certificate - Preliminary English Test (PET) at least grade B; IELTS level 6.5; Internet Based TOEFL 85; UNIcert I; Abitur 8 points in English.
But if you do not have any of these we may still be prepared to test your English, just talk to us.
