*Please be aware that specific requirements have been set by the German Ministry of Education for certain international high school diplomas. Some of these can be found below:
If you are attending a high school which offers a different diploma to the above, please check the DAAD website for the exact requirements. The requirements are subject to change and we edeavour to provide up-to-date information. However, due to delays in receiving information, we cannot guarantee to always have the latest information available.
2. Assessment Centre
If your application is successful, you will be invited to one of our Assessment Centres. We arrange multiple Assessment Centres each year for your convenience. These take place on our campus and consist of an interview, an English test, an analytical test and a mathematical test. The Assessment Centre is free of charge.
As we have incorporated an English language test into our Assessment Centre, you are not required to submit an English certificate with your application. If you do not meet our English Language requirements at our Assessment Centre, we will get in touch with you to discuss further options.
If you are not able to attend an Assessment Centre here in Frankfurt, you can instead submit one of the following test results with your online application: SAT, ACT or TestAS (core test and Economics module), plus a standardised English test (TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge or Pearson).
Due to the current situation regarding the Coronavirus, we are now offering certain Assessment Centres online. We encourage you to still complete your application normally and we will inform you as soon as possible, in which form your Assessment Centre will take place.
Alternatively, it may be also possible to organise an Assessment Centre in your own country for a fee of 130€. Please select this option when filling out the online application form and we will try our best to make it happen.
To get an idea of the types of questions you might encounter in the analytical test we have provided a few example exercises.

The final decision regarding admission to our BSc programmes will be based on a combination of the candidate’s school grades, English language abilities and performance at the assessment centre.
We also take into account other significant experiences, commitments or awards such as internships, international experiences and volunteer projects.
