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.
**This does not need to be handed in with the online application. You must however have at least already registered to take a test and hand in the results by July 15th latest.
2. Assessment Centre
If your application is successful, you will be invited to one of our Assessment Centres. This may be waived if you can provide one of the following test results: SAT, ACT or TestAS (core test and Economics module).
We arrange multiple Assessment Centres each year for your convenience. These take place on our campus and consist of an interview, a knowledge test, an analytical test and a mathematical test. 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 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 analytic 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.
4. Programme Start
The programme starts at the beginning of September. All students are expected to be at Frankfurt School on this day. A week before the classes start there will be an introduction week where you will have the chance to meet your future coursemates.
