Language requirements for international prospective students

For study programmes that are taught in German, a minimum German language proficiency level of A1 (according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) is required at the time the application is submitted.

Applicants to the medical and dental degree programmes (state examination, 1st semester) must submit proof that they have passed all parts (written and oral) of the DSH exam with a level of DSH-3 or an equivalent language certification at the time of application. The language certificate must not be more than one year old at the time of application.

The DSH exam can be taken at the University of Göttingen. A DSH certificate from another university will be recognised only if the DSH examination regulations of this university are registered with the German Rectors’ Conference (Hoschulrektorenkonferenz – HRK).

If your application documents were not issued in German, English or French, a certified translation prepared by an officially accredited translation agency is required.

PLEASE NOTE: When applying to either Medicine or Dentistry, all certificates that were not issued in German must be translated into German. Only official German translations by accredited translation agencies will be accepted.

Students who have been admitted to study in a degree programme at Göttingen must, at the time of enrolment, provide proof of a successful DSH-2 exam or an equivalent language certification. For the bachelor’s programme in Psychology, DSH-3 is required.

The DSH exam can be taken at the University of Göttingen. A DSH certificate from another university will be recognised only if the DSH examination regulations of this university are registered with the German Rectors’ Conference (Hoschulrektorenkonferenz – HRK).

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