Language Certificate

As the entire programme is taught in English, the Selection Committee requires proof of the applicant's proficiency in English. Accepted English language certificates:

  • TOEFL: paper based - 580 | computer-based - 237 | internet-based – 93;
  • IELTS (academic test): minimum required score of 6.5 and not less than 6.0 in the writing section;
  • Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (minimum 180 points);
  • Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (minimum score C1).

The language certificate must not be older than two years at the time of admission to the programme (May/June).

Exception: English-native-speaking applicants and those who successfully completed an English-taught Bachelor's programme do not have to take a test.

Grade Point Average (GPA)/grading systems & relevant courses Please use the respective templates to be found under the Download section.
Letter of recommendation At least one of the letters of recommendation must be from an academic in your Bachelor's or degree programme. It is possible to upload the letters of recommendation directly into the online application. If the person writing the letter of recommendation does not want to send it to you directly, they can send it to jointdegrees(at) and we will take care of the upload.
Motivation Statement You will have to enter your motivation statement directly into the online application. We recommend that you write it in advance - max. 4,000 characters.
Leipzig: Proof of professional experience This is a specific requirement for Leipzig University as an entrance university. Please note that for the selection in the first stage, the indication of professional experience in the CV is sufficient. Proof may be requested later as part of the admission procedure at Leipzig University. For more information, please visit the website of Leipzig University.



1. It is possible to submit the language certificate after the application deadline, but at the latest before the selection meeting takes place. Please upload the registration confirmation for the English test and indicate the exam/result date in the application. The certificate should be available at the selection committee meeting (April 18, 2024)!

If you experience any problems, i.e. the language test centres are closed or the tests have been cancelled, please upload a confirmation of the cancelled tests + a confirmation of your test application. If you could provide additional language certificates or confirmations (e.g. older certificates etc.), this would also be very helpful. Due to this unusual situation, we will evaluate all applications on the condition that the language certificates are submitted at a later date.

2. If you have not yet received your diploma/degree certificate, you can apply for the programme, but you should mention in your application when you will graduate and that you will provide the selection committee with your diploma/certificate as soon as possible after graduation. Your diploma/degree certificate must be submitted as hard copy at the latest during admission to the entrance university!
