We are now offering a Pre-Master's programme for those students who need to improve their English language skills before beginning the Master's programme.
The entire International Management programme is taught in English, including all the courses at our partner universities participating in the Tripartite Master Programme. All non-native English speakers must therefore submit proof of sufficient English language skills. Test results must be no more than 24 months old (all documents will be reviewed) and verbal skills will be tested in a personal or telephone interview with a lecturer from the English programme.
There are two options for being accepted into the programme: directly and indirectly via our Pre-Master's programme. The chart below outlines the English testing levels required for each of these options.
Native speakers, applicants in whose country of origin English is the official language, or applicants with a university degree from an English speaking country can be exempted upon request. Requests for such an exemption should be submitted by e-mail and reasons should be explained in detail.
What is the Pre-Master's programme?
The Pre-Master's programme consists of a 6-week English course designed for applicants whose English language skills don't quite fulfill the requirements for acceptance into the Master's programme. The goal of the course is to help students improve their English to a level of proficiency which will allow them to carry out their studies and career training in the target language. The course is comprised of 150 lecture hours as well as a final examination. Students who pass the course will be accepted into the Master's programme; those who don't pass must take further courses before they can reapply.
The Pre-Master's programme also offers an optional German course for those students who are interested. This is a 3-week course of Beginning German (Level A1.1) which is comprised of 45 lecture hours (3 hours per day). Please note: This German course is available for all of our students independent of whether or not they are enrolled in the Pre-Master's programme!
So there are three different packages available for the Pre-Master's programme: 1) only the English course, 2) only the German course, 3) both the English and the German course.
