German Language Skills

German language skills are required for German-speaking, continuing education master’s programs if you haveearned your degree at a university abroad.

For German-speaking continuing education master’s programs it is required to demonstrate German language skills at the level of DSH 2 in accordance with the German higher education entrance examination (Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang ausländischer Studienbewerberinnen und -bewerber, DSH) or by means of equivalents  to the DSH.

Due to the current situation, it is sufficient to submit simple copies of proofs of language skills for application or enrollment for the winter semester 2020/21.

If you are not yet able to prove skills at the level DSH 2, you have to prove a minimum level of German language skills based on the following certificates for application:

  • C1 CEFR certificate with grades
  • TestDaF registration
  • TestDaF with at least level 4 in two parts and level 3 in two parts (f.e. 4/4/3/3)
  • language evaluation test, which attests skills at level C1 CEFR
  • DSH 1

In case of admission, you will receive an invitation for the DSH exam together with your notice of admission.

We strongly recommend submitting your German language certificate (DSH 2 or equivalent) together with your application for the master’s program.
