Duales Studium

You have applied for a dual study program and have already made initial entries in the application portal. However, your German language skills do not yet correspond to level B2? Then you should study in one of our English-language programs of myStudies and prove your language skills.

Why myStudies?

With our myStudies English-language degree programmes, you study in a state-recognised programme - either at our locations in Berlin and Bad Honnef or full-time at our virtual campus, regardless of location.

This means you don't have to interrupt your studies even when you're abroad, and you can gain valuable practical experience along the way - e.g. with a part-time job.

On 2-3 days per week, you deepen your knowledge in small groups and usually only take 3 modules at a time, so you save yourself a lot of stress. At Germany's largest university, you benefit from maximum flexibility, many additional offers and excellent support.

Admission requirements

For our English-language myStudies degree programs, you should be able to prove your English proficiency with one of the following tests:

  • TOEFL (min. 80 points)

  • IELTS (at least level 6)

  • Duolingo English test (min. 95 points)

  • Cambridge certificate (min. overall grade B)

Please note that your proof must be submitted before you start your studies and must not be older than five years. If you have already completed your first degree in English or if you are a native English speaker, you do not need to provide proof of your language skills.
