In the case of free-admission (non-restricted admission) programs, it is sufficient to submit a recognized proof of German language proficiency at the required level by September 30 or March 31. Applications can then be submitted by September 30 or March 31. In the case of free-admission (non-restricted admission) programs, you can also take our DSH to prove that you have sufficient German language skills.
