Does the university recognize "other equivalent language certificates"? yes

Additional information:
To meet this language requirement, the university will not accept B.A. certificates in “English Studies” (or related fields) or certificates administered by lecturers of other universities. Students may, however, pass the DAAD written test at the University of Cologne (free of charge). Native speakers of English are exempt from this requirement. Upon the registration of their Master thesis—i.e., towards the end of their studies, NOT with their application to the program—students will have to provide a certificate of their proficiency of another modern European language at B1-level (CEF).
