Admission test and selection interview

The entrance test includes:

English test

The English language test is done online and consists of a variety of tasks that are focused on grammar, spelling and vocabulary skills.

If grammatical or linguistic deficits are revealed, we may recommend that you attend our pre-courses in English prior to beginning your studies.

performance test

The performance test is comparable to an IQ test. In a total of 105 minutes, multiple-choice speech, mathematical and spatial intelligence are tested. In the linguistic field, it is important to find additions of sentences, analogies or similarities of concepts.

The mathematical abilities are queried by simple arithmetic tasks, which can be solved by "lubrication sheets". Counting fractions, completing number series, completing arithmetic symbols must be carried out under time pressure.

Detecting surface models of cubes, forming triangles or circles, discovering groups with identical patterns are the tasks with which the figural spatial intelligence is determined.

personality test

The personality test provides information about the individual achievement motivation. Examining behavior in different professional or private situations provides insight into personality traits that are grouped into a "measure of determination of job-related achievement motivation". Some applicants recognize personal strengths and weaknesses that often make them think.

admission interview

Following the tests, a concluding conversation with one of our professors or their representative will follow on the same day. In it, we first explain the evaluations of the tests and, if necessary, tell you which requirements you still have to fulfill before starting your studies.

Furthermore, we will discuss your individual expectations of the study and your goals afterwards. You will also learn how we work, what is important to us and what we expect from our future students. The demands placed on our future students are high - we attach particular importance to analytical thinking, social competence, oral expressiveness as well as goal orientation and resilience. We do not want to intimidate or overwhelm you - on the contrary! Show us who you are! Honesty and openness are more effective than general phrases or a played dynamics.
