All applicants to the B.Sc. CEP have to pass an aptitude test (Eignungsfeststellungsverfahren) successfully in order to enrol in this programme. This is to ensure that proficiency in English and Mathematics is at a level which will allow them to study successfully. Please take note of the following points:

  • The aptitude test has two steps. If you pass the first step you are admitted to the second step.
    The overall points score in the first step of the aptitude test is based on your grade in the German Abitur or some acknowledged equivalent to this from other countries and your grades in English and Mathematics. This step is done automatically as the admission commission checks the relevant documents for application.
  • The overall points score of the second step of the aptitude test is based on your grade in the German Abitur or some acknowledged equivalent to this from other countries and your grade from an interview that will be conducted by the admission commission.
  • No application for the aptitude test or selection interview is neccessary. Step one of the aptitude test is done automatically once applicants have submitted their complete application.
