Applicants must meet the following requirements:

The IB must be obtained after attending at least twelve years of full-time education. The 6 examination subjects taken must conform to IB conditions stipulated by the German Higher Education system:

  • 2 languages at A or B level (one of which at least must be a foreign language studied uninterruptedly as "Language A" or "Language B HL" )
  • 1 Natural Science subject (Biology, Chemistry, Physics)
  • 1 Mathematics subject (Mathematical Methods or Mathematics HL or Further Mathematics together with Mathematics HL)
  • 1 social Science Subject (History, Geography, Economics, Psychology, Philosophy, Social Anthropology und Business and Management)
  • The 6th compulsory subject may be one of the above or one of the following subjects recognized by the IB: Art/Design, Music, Theatre Arts, Film, Literature and Performance, another modern foreign language; Latin, Classical Greek, General Chemistry, Applied Chemistry, Environmental Systems, Computer Science, Design Technology, World Religions, Sports exercise and health science.
  • One of the three subjects to be taken at higher level must be Mathematics or a Natural Science subject such as Biology, Chemistry or Physics.
  • All subjects must have been taken uninterruptedly (continuously) up to the end of the school career.

Candidates have to attain a minimum IB Grade of 4 on the six compulsory subjects. Where an IB grade of 3 is awarded in one subject only, it is possible to compensate for this if another subject taken at the same level has been awarded at least an IB Grade 5, and an aggregate of 24 points has been attained.
