German language skills requirements at the time of enrolment

Upon registration/enrolment, all successful applicants who received admission in Göttingen for a regular course of study must submit evidence of German language proficiency corresponding to a successfully completed DSH-2-examination or to a certified alternative examination.

The DSH-examination can be taken at the University of Göttingen. A DSH-certificate which was acquired at a different university will only be accepted if the DSH-examination of this university is accredited by the German Rectors' Conference (Hochschulrektorenkonferenz, HRK - see the link below).

Students are personally responsible for insuring that they have acquired sufficient German language skills prior to the deadline of enrolment.
