We arrange multiple Assessment Centres each year for your convenience. These take place on our campus and consist of an interview, a knowledge test, a written English test, an analytical test and some groupwork. The Assessment Centre is free of charge.
If you are not able to attend an Assessment Centre here in Frankfurt, it may be possible to organise one to take place in your own country. Please contact us for more information.
To get an idea of the types of questions you might encounter in the analytic test we have provided a few example exercises.

We also take into account other significant experiences, commitments or awards such as internships, international experiences and volunteer projects.
