Even if you have studied in English during your entire university career (e.g. in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Ethiopia, India, …) the result of an official English test is needed. The only exceptions apply to applicants who have studied in the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, or New Zealand, or at a university in the European Union where English was the language of instruction. German applicants can submit their Abitur-Zeugnis as proof of English if they studied English in the last two years of high school and if they achieved at least 8 points on average during these two years.

Application Documents

Before you apply, make sure you have the following documents ready in PDF format:

  1. Bachelor's Degree Certificate & Transcript of Records in original form, with certified translations into English or German (if issued in another language).
    In addition to credits and grades earned per course, transcripts must include a grading scale, otherwise a supplement is to be included.
    If you have not graduated yet at the time of applying, you can just upload your current grade list.
    In case you have studied at the master’s level already you can also include the respective documents here. They cannot replace the bachelor’s documents, they can only be considered additional to your bachelor’s degree.
  2. Proof of English proficiency (see language requirements). Please note: Language proficiency letters from universities are not accepted.
  3. University Entrance Qualification (i.e. your secondary school leaving certificate, high school diploma, A-level certificate, etc.) in original form, with certified translations into English or German (if issued in another language). This is needed for statistical purposes only and does not influence your admission to the program.
  4. Ranking or recommendation letter, if additional proof is needed to show that the final grade of your previous degree was actually above average. If your GPA is numerically below average (2.5 on the German scale), then you will need to acquire a ranking document from your university proving that you were in the top half of your class.
  5. Proof of special aptitude for the degree program (optional, if final grade is not above average).
