German Language Skills

Prerequisite to enroll in German language degree programs

Good command of German is an important prerequisite to successfully complete your studies at TUM. Proof of sufficient German language skills must be submitted before the end of the application period for all degree programs whose language of instruction is German. Applicants holding a German university entrance qualification do not require verification of their German language skills. Here you will find some more information about the proof of German language proficiency.

For English-only programs, it is not necessary for admission to show proof of German language proficiency.
