Teaching language – Language requirements

The main teaching language in all Bachelor’s degree programmes is German. However, even at Bachelor’s level some courses may be held in English or French. With a view to the Master’s degree programmes, which are mostly conducted in English, very good knowledge of English is essential. The teaching language of each individual course is indicated in the Course Catalogue


If a candidate’s verified university/university of applied sciences study achievements allow admission without examination, proof of knowledge of German of at least Certificate Level C1 of the Common European Framework must still be supplied as a condition of admission. The language requirements are equal those for admission to the first semester.
