Please note: The following information is only relevant if you are applying for a place on any of the Master's programs in the Wiesbaden Business School OR for the Creative Media Conception program at the faculty of Design-Computer Science-Media.  These academic programs require you to prove that your English is at a sufficiently high level to cope with lectures, course work and presentations in English.

Master's programs with English level requirements

Wiesbaden Business School (WBS)

The current English requirements for each of the Wiesbaden Business School's Master programs, as well as the accepted certificates are listed here and on the programs' respective pages. If you have none of the listed standardized exams as documentation, you may register to take the Oxford Online Placement test (OOPT) at the HSRM Language Center (information here).

If you have questions about the certification of your English level which are not answered by the table of accepted certificates/tests you find on the WBS page linked above, please contact Mr. Greg Rampinelli, Head of the "Business in English" program at the Wiesbaden Business School.


Creative Media Conception (DCSM)

This degree program requires applicants to document their B1 level in English by submitting a test score from any of the standardized tests accepted by the HSRM:

Table (in German) of accepted standardized certificates/tests (März 2021)
Table (in English) of accepted standardized certificates/tests (March, 2021)

There are several ways to provide proof of your proficiency in English:

1. You can pass an internationally recognised English exam and submit a copy of the certificate with your application.

Please note: Due to the risks of in-person testing during the pandemic, an official version of the TOEFL test has been made available which can be taken at home (TOEFL at Home).  Although it does not appear on our list of standardized tests or on the website, this test version has been officially approved by all five Master's programs at the Wiesbaden Business School and is currently accepted by the HSRM as language level documentation.

2. You can take a computer-based English test in the university's Language Center (at the Kurt-Schumacher-Ring campus) and obtain the required point score for the degree program in which you wish to enroll (further information and registration here: Computer-based English test). Please note: This test is a service offered only to HSRM Master applicants - there is a €10 fee per test taken. We do not test people applying to other universities!

Please note that the Language Center is NOT in any way involved in the selection process for any of the degree programs; we are responsible ONLY for administering the Oxford test according to the various program requirements, and we cannot provide any information or advice regarding the application procedure or acceptance decisions.
