Language of instruction is English. At least passive knowledge of the local language of instruction at the host university and at partner universities offering electives, mobility windows and/or dual degree tracks (e.g. Frankfurt = German, Brussels = French, EUI Florence/Palermo = Italian) is of advantage. There might be additional optional courses and/or extra-curricular activities on offer in the local language of instruction, depending on the choice of optional mobility phases ("mobility windows") spent at other partner universities and semester. However, prior knowledge of these local languages of instruction is not required in order to be able to follow the study programme (a sufficient number of courses in English will be on offer in each semester at each of the potential locations for optional modules outside of Frankfurt); a good command of these additional languages (only) broadens the choice for alternative options.
All non-native speakers must demonstrate their English proficiency with:
- A test result in the International English Testing System (IELTS, 7 pt minimum) OR
- Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), internet based test 100pt minimum, with the following minimum section requirements:
- Reading: 20, Listening: 20
- Speaking: 20, Writing: 20
- Any equivalent recognized English language proficiency certificate
Students holding a prior first or second degree with the English language as a medium of instruction do not have to submit such a test report.
