FAQs - Admission requirements
I am interested in Engineering and Business Administration at Hannover but I don’t have any German language proficiency. How much German do I need in future?
For studying Engineering and Business Administration at the Leibniz Universität Hannover, it is definitely necessary for you to learn the German language. Almost all the lectures are held in German and papers have to be written in German, too. Apart from needing German to be able to follow the courses, you need a German language certificate to get admission to study at the Leibniz Universität Hannover. Your German language skills have to be verified by a German language test that has a TestDaf- (“Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache” – Test German as a foreign language)-level (TDN-level) of 4 in all four test categories. The center of enrolment can give you further information on this certificate. Please contact studiumuni-hannover.de !
