Applicants who have obtained a university degree outside the EU must prove that they have a GRE.

Also, admission can be applied for if the first vocational degree has not yet been obtained because individual examination results are missing and - on the basis of attainments (in particular examination results) achieved thus far in the course of study – it is to be expected that the degree will be obtained by the end of the first semester of the master's program. A certificate must be provided from the university at which the degree is to be completed about the Credit Points already obtained and the current average grade. Where admission to the program takes place in the summer semester, admission will be subject to the condition that proof of the degree is provided by 31st August; where admission to the program takes place in the winter semester, admission will be subject to the condition that proof of the degree is provided by 28th February in the year after the program has been commenced.
