Additional information:
You can prove your English language skills through the language of instruction in your previous school or academic education – for example, if you completed a fully English-language school education (e.g. A-Levels, IB Diploma or High School Diploma) or if the language of instruction in a bachelor's degree program was English – by submitting your transcript of records or your degree certificate as evidence. The language of instruction needs to have been English in at least 50% of the program. If the language of instruction is not stated in these documents, you can submit an official confirmation issued by your prior university. Semesters spent in an exchange program or internship are not sufficient. A GMAT with a score higher than 600 is accepted as proof of English skills for some master's programs offered by the TUM School of Management. English language proficiency may no longer be proven by school grades (e.g. in the Abitur).
