Additional information:
In some cases, an alternative form of proof of language proficiency may be submitted in place of a language certificate, such as a GMAT with a score higher than 600 or via the language of instruction in an academic program (e.g. in a bachelor's) by submitting your transcript of records or your degree certificate as evidence (the language of instruction needs to have been English in more than 50% of the program). Students who provide an English language certificate with their application are admitted on the condition that they complete one module providing integrative knowledge of the German language within the first two semesters of their studies. TUM offers free courses for that purpose. If you already have a German language certificate to at least the A1 level, please submit that with your application.
