A 3. I have not yet taken an English proficiency test. Can I apply without one?

Proof of your English skills is a requirement for admission. Therefore, the Online Application System will ask you for a valid English proficiency test. If you cannot submit the test right away, you will be asked to indicate a date on which you will take the test. You will have to provide it before the final application deadline.

Please be aware that in some countries, such as Bangladesh for instance, German embassies require a valid TOEFL or IELTS test score for processing visa applications, even if you have been accepted at a university without such proof. In this case you should make sure that a missing English test result will not inconvenience your visa application.

(Due to COVID-19 we will not insist on a renewal if your test has already expired, but please double check with your visa requirements!)
