Additional information:
English language knowledge can also be proven by five years of continuous English lessons at a German-speaking secondary school completed with at least 5 points (usually certified by the higher education entrance qualification). This requirement is also met if you can document having attended secondary school, having completed a bachelor’s degree or having studied at least one semester abroad in Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Malta, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa or the United States. In justified exceptional cases, knowledge of English can be proven in an interview. The Standing Examination Board Nanoscience decides on exceptional cases. International applicants do not have to prove the German language skills.
