Additional information:
English language proficiency can also be proven by evidence on the upper secondary school certificate (continuous and successful completion of English over four semesters) or courses in the context of the acquisition of an equivalent university entrance qualification. Applicants with English as their mother tongue or with a university entrance qualification obtained in an English-speaking country or a university degree in a course in which English is the primary language of instruction, do not have to provide any further proof of English language skills beyond their certificate. This also excludes students from exchange programs recognized by the English seminar and students of the Bachelor's degree in political science who take courses at the English seminar as part of their compulsory elective area. None of the language certificates with the exception of upper grades may be older than three years at the beginning of the course.
