Language proficiency

If you cannot present a certificate for Level B2 in German proficiency at the time of the audition, you must attain at least Level A2 in German proficiency before you are allowed to start studying at the university. There are courses at the Goethe-Institut, Hartnack-Schule and others in which you can enroll. The Technische Universität Berlin also offers a course during the summer semester break.

After you have attained Level A2, you will be allowed to start studying at UdK Berlin in the following semester for a period of two semesters.

You are expected to have attained Level B2 in German proficiency by the end of your second semester at the university. This is a mandatory requirement for continuing your studies beyond the second semester. The UdK Berlin also offers language courses for students.

The language certificates are to be presented at the individual interviews following the entrance exams. We will address your individual concerns and assist you in finding solutions regarding the language requirement.
