Admission criteria

The admission to the study programme is limited. A study place quota of 15% is reserved for foreign applicants.

One of the following preconditions has to be fulfilled for an immatriculation:

  • General qualification for university entrance
  • Subject-bound higher entrance qualification
  • Advanced technical college entrance qualification
  • Equivalent degree at a school abroad

For foreign applicants, the assessment of the equivalence of their school-leaving qualifications takes place after the application has been received by the university, taking into account the requirements of the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the LĂ€nder in the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Rectors' Conference. International study applications, with the exception of applications from graduates* of partner universities, are subject to an external preliminary examination by UNI-ASSIST (Arbeits- und Servicestelle fĂŒr internationale Studienbewerbungen; www.uni-assist.de).

The equality of school degree of foreign applicants will be ascertained when the application reaches us.

Every applicant needs to verify his skills in English language

This can be a certificate of the “Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)”, the “Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC)”, comparable qualifications, as well as English as a mother tongue or official language in your home country.

  • Foreign students need additionally a certificate of good German language skills: German language test “Europaratsnorm B2”, “Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache (TestDaF)” graded with at least four times mark 3, other comparable qualifications.

  • If one of these requirements (German or English language certificate)is not fulfilled the applicant can get a temporary admission if basic skills in the non-certificated language can be verified.
