In accordance with guidelines for testing German at the university, non-German speaking students applying for a Bachelor or Master’s program or a program for becoming a teacher must present proof of sufficient language skills in German. You will be required to take a German test if you do not have a recognized certificate.
No proof is necessary for Master’s programs not held in German. You will, however, need to prove your competency in the language spoken in the program.
The following Master’s programs are held in English and require that you can prove your competency in English:
- Master of Law UZH Double Degree (General Studies), Master of Law UZH Double Degree (European and International Law) and Master of Law UZH Double Degree (International Business Law)
- Master of Arts in Economics, specialization in 'Management and Economics', 'Banking and Finance' and 'Economics'
- Master of Science in Informatics, specialization in 'Software Systems' and 'Multimodal and Cognitive Systems'
- Master of Arts in English Linguistics and/or Literature
- All Master of Science programs at the Faculty of Science
The level of C1 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages is required. The C1 level corresponds to a minimum number of points scored on the IELTS or TOEFL examinations.
