Documents required for the assessment of professional suitability

The following documents are required for the assessment of professional suitability:

  • Your Bachelor's degree certificate or - if the degree certificate is not yet available - an official transcript of records. The respective document must contain the titles of the successfully completed modules and the grades achieved and should include information on the scope of the individual modules, for example in the form of credit points.
  • The module catalogue belonging to the your Bachelor's degree program or a comparable document showing the time frame, forms of teaching, teaching content and learning objectives of the individual modules. If your university does not provide a module catalogue, you can compile this information yourself. In this case, however, it must be clearly recognisable that your document is not an official one, but one you have created yourself.
  • Proof of English proficiency by GRE test score ( Please request ETS to provide us with your GRE test certificate. Our Institutional Code for this is: 7144.
