In this course, all exams can be taken in English, all written papers can be submitted in English as well. However, a good passive command of German is required, since you must be able to follow the discussions in class. We therefore strongly encourage candidates to enrol in an intensive German course prior to commencing their studies at the NDU.

Also, please note that proof of at least a B2 level in either German or English is required for admission (if your English is at B2 or higher, you will still need the aforementioned passive German skills when attending classes).

On demand, the master's course will be offered entirely in English (minimum 10 participants required).
