Overview of language entrance requirements

The following overview sorted by faculty, degree, and degree programme shows the required level of German language proficiency and/or the required or recommended level of foreign language proficiency which must be fulfilled as language entrance requirement at the time of enrolment.

Annotations:

* C2: if German is chosen as A-language or C1: if German is chosen as B-language

** C1: for chosen B-language, B2 for chosen C-language

*** For German school leaving certificates: Level B2 is recognised if the certificate of the general higher education entrance qualification shows at least the grade "sufficient" in the continued foreign language (i.e. in the first or second foreign language of the German Gymnasium or at the corresponding level of another type of school leading to the general higher education entrance qualification) or if the certificate of the higher education entrance qualification of a public or state-recognised German Fachoberschule or Berufsoberschule shows at least the grade "sufficient" in the relevant language. Alternatively, level B2 may also be proven by another official document.

Please note:
Unless stated otherwise, all programmes are taught in German.
