    Applicants with a foreign degree must have their documents translated into German or English by a court certified translator. Please respect the relevant rules of certification for your country. Determining the equivalence of certificates/degrees from foreign countries can take up to three weeks. For this reason we recommend that you send in the relevant documentation in a timely manner.

    The postmark is used as proof of the date of mailing.

  5. Once we have received your documents, you will receive an e-mail requesting that you log in and choose a date for your test. The computer-based test lasts for 2 hours and 45 minutes and assesses understanding of mathematical logic, verbal intelligence/creativity and English proficiency. Please choose a date that suits you (test dates are offered on a first come – first served basis). For organizational reasons it is not possible to change the date of your test.

    We see ourselves as the leading university for management & communication. Therefore, you can expect a particularly challenging admissions procedure.

    Since we want to know what potential you have, there is also a special feature in the tasks. The difficulty of the tasks will adapt to your performance as you take the computer-based test. This means that you will always be challenged by the tasks. Please do not be discouraged by this! This will give us a more accurate picture of your potential and talents.

    Seize the opportunity to show us what potential and strengths you already have!

    Information about the duration of the test:

    Please note, the computer-based test must be completed within a time period of two and a half hours, plus an extension period of max. 15 minutes. At the end of the 2 hours and 45 minutes the test will be stopped by the trainer. Tests that are not completed will still be marked. Keeping track of time is the responsibility of the student.

    It will be made clear that the different test blocks take different amounts of time.

    By choosing a date for the test, you are confirming your agreement with this process.
