Additional information:
English language proficiency can also be proven by graduates from German schools: Certification of at least five years of English at school with an average mark of at least 3.5 in the German marking system from the two final years will also fill the language requirement. Native speakers of English and those who hold a degree of a University in a country where English is the mother tongue don't have to certify the language requirements. This exception does not extent to universities in countries where English is not the mother tongue, even if it is the language of instruction. Knowledge of German is not needed for your studies but is of course helpful for everyday life.
