There are exceptions to this requirement. Native English speakers or graduates who have obtained a Bachelor’s degree from an English-language programme at a university within the European Union or in a country where English is the official language are exempted.

German language proficiency is not compulsory for a successful application, however we strongly recommend all students to have some basic knowledge of the German language.

⇒ Contrary to all other degree courses, the sport qualification test is not compulsory for the admission to any master programme at the German Sport University.

Please note: individual relevance test of the completed course of studies

For capacity reasons, it is not possible to carry out a personalised relevance assessment of undergraduate studies before admission.

Annex A of the Master’s admission regulations (available for download) specifies the study requirements that must be fulfilled. Prospective students can use this to self-assess their completed study contents and determine whether to apply.
