Please note: You may apply without submitting the language proof and the final degree certificate (in case you’ve finished your prior degree recently and the document is still to be prepared).

Documents in languages other than German or English have to be translated into German or English and to be certified by German authorities. Translations have to be done by officially approved translatοrs.
