University entrance requirements:

For application or admission to a first degree programme (Bachelor’s degree or state examination), proof of German language skills at a level of at least C1 is required. A telc certificate serves as recognised proof and is ideal for enrolment. For subjects that require a very high level of language competence, such as law, medicine or psychology, it is even advisable to obtain a C2 certificate.

University entrance requirements:

At the University of Cologne, the following certificates are recognised as a substitute for DSH 2:

  • German Language Examination for University Admission (DSH-2 or DSH-3)*.
  • TestDaF (German as a Foreign Language) with level 4 in all four examination parts
  • Goethe Certificate C2
  • telc German C1 University
  • telc German C2

*At some universities it is not possible to take the DSH examination, as you can only register for the DSH courses if you have already been admitted to university.
