Language Requirements and Help

A C1 certificate in German is required. 
Students around the world have earned a C1 certificate by dedicating the proper time and practice to intensive language studies. This is particularly within reach for those who may have studied German as a second language in high school or secondary school programs.
A C1 certificate is considered fluent and is an assessment given by the Goethe Institute. For information regarding classes, programs, and testing dates, please visit their American site or German site. Alternatively, a DSH score of 2 is also grounds for acceptance at the University of Bonn. Specific information on the DSH can be obtained here.
Please note that testing dates are only available a few times a year and must be planned in advance and in accordance to when you wish to begin your studies.
