Language requirements

The language of tuition for all the bachelor’s degree courses and most of the master’s degree courses at the University of Kassel is German. You therefore need an excellent knowledge of the language. You must provide evidence of this as part of the application procedure for a university place. We accept the following language certificates:


By using the Summary of German Language Certificates, you can establish whether your language certificates are recognised by the University of Kassel.

Depending on where you categorise your language certificates there, you can see in the summary of language requirements for studying whether your language certificates entitle you to study at a university or whether you need to take the DSH examination or perhaps first attend a preparatory course.
