Guidelines for Recognition

Before filling in the application form, please read the following guideline document and Admisson Regulations carefully:

For applicants who have not obtained their degree qualification within a member state of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), the assessment of the qualification is based on the final grade of the degree and the assessment of a GRE test score. These two components each make up 50% of the overall grade. Both must be submitted electronically (application portal) to the university by the application deadline at the latest. The minimum requirement for the GRE test is a score at the 83rd percentile or better (referred to as "%below") in the "Quantitative" section of the test. Applications without a GRE will not be considered. As the final grade is converted using the "Bavarian formula", proof of the minimum pass mark and the maximum achievable grade must also be submitted.

If you have completed your undergraduate studies in China, India or Vietnam, you must present an APS certificate during application and during the visa process.
