However, our admissions committee maintains the authority to request any additional evidence of English proficiency if deemed necessary.

Please note that all documents must be submitted in English. Only high school leaving certificates and transcripts are also accepted in German.

Step 3: Application Review and Interview

The admission process includes the reviewing and evaluating of each application on an individual basis for an applicant's abilities as a student. If approved, you’ll be contacted by an admissions team member soon thereafter in order to schedule an online interview.

The interview will give the university the opportunity to clarify issues arising from the application as well as permitting an assessment of the personality profile of the applicants. It will also ensure that applicants understand the expectations with regard to their chosen program. It is also the chance for applicants to ask any further questions. 

Step 4: Admission Decision

Usually once per week the admissions committee decides on admission based on previous education performance, the motivation and general impression, extracurricular activities, interview performance and academic aptitude of the applicant. If approved, admissions documents will be sent to the future student. 

Note: Applications will also be accepted before high school graduation.
