Proof of basic German language skills for students in master’s degree programs in English

International students in English taught master’s programs have to provide proof of a basic command of the German language. If you do not have any proof of German language skills at the time of your enrollment at TUM, you are obligated to hand in the missing proof within the first year of your studies. Make sure you check first with your department about what will be accepted as proof of your German language skills. This can differ from one department to the next. The following certificates are examples of what can count as proof:

  • successful completion of an A1.1, A1.2 or A1.1plusA1.2 level German language course at the TUM Language Center
  • certificate of a successfully passed A1.1, A1.2 or A1.1plusA1.2 level language exam at the TUM Language Center

The TUM Language Center offers many courses each semester at level A1. Check the following link for information on our program and course registration:

Please note: Aside from the courses at the TUM Language Center, there may be other options to receive the required proof of your basic German language skills. For further information, please ask your department for the specific details.
