    • For German students, the proof of 5 years of English classes at secondary school are sufficient, with a grade of at least 3.5 in the last two years
    • Applicants whose bachelor program was held in English only need a University certificate.

On the basis of the documents presented, the Board of Admission (Zulassungsausschuss) decides whether the conditions of entry are fulfilled or not. In case of the latter, an interview or an entrance examination may be necessary. In some cases, students who are missing certain qualifications may be granted admission on the condition that they acquire these qualifications in the course of their studies, for example by attending additional modules.
