German proficiency

In most courses of study you have to prove German language skills of C1 in order to be admitted. However, there are some exceptions in the Master's area (e.g. Master Conflict, Memory & Peace, Master Business and Psycholoy) for which you have to prove a lower level of German and instead other language skills (English, Spanish). If you are applying for a Bachelor's degree and do not yet have the required German language skills, you can attend an intensive German course before beginning your studies (minimum requirement A2) and then take a German language examination.

If you do not yet have sufficient knowledge of German at the time of application, you can attend the DSH course before starting your studies.

Depending on your country of origin, you will need a long lead time to obtain a visa. We therefore recommend that you apply for a student applicant visa ("Studienbewerbervisum". For this visa you only need a confirmation from the KU that you have applied. This allows you to start the visa process early.
