Language prerequisites for admission to Modern Indian Studies (M.A.)

Candidates with a native language other than English must have sufficient knowledge in English. Sufficient knowledge in English must be proved by minimum achievements in an internationally recognised test (requirements apply from winter semester 2020/21):

a) UNIcert®: level UNIcert® III;
b) NULTE-Zertifikate: minimum level C1;
c) Cambridge English Scale: minimum of 180 points;
d) „International English Language Testing System" (IELTS Academic): minimum level Band 6.5;

f) Global Scale of English (Pearson Academic): minimum of 76 points;
g) other certificate, minimum level C1 according to Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Successful passing of the test must not date back longer than three years prior to receipt of the application for enrolment and admission to the Master’s degree programme. Candidates who have completed at least one year of study or gainful employment in an English-speaking country in the last four years prior to receipt of the application for admission are exempt from furnishing evidence of having passed a test. The evidence of sufficient knowledge in English must be submitted to the Faculty of Social and Cultural Sciences by 30 September at the latest when enrolling for a winter semester; this evidence is a matriculation prerequisite; conditional enrolment is excluded.
