Admission information for the graduate programs

Overview about required documents

The current application deadline is November 15, 2021.

English tests in the official test centers are currently often not possible. However, there are also offers for tests from home (IELTS: https://www.ieltsindicator.com/ and Toefl: https://www.ets.org/s/cv/toefl/at-home/). You can also submit your English test results separately by e-mail directly to Dr. Stöwesand until the last week of November.

Applicants from outside Germany send their complete application to the International Relations Office (Akademisches Auslandsamt - AAA).
All your certificates need to be verified as a true copy of the original. The AAA sends back all applications without official verified copies together with a rejection letter.
