In this course, all exams can be taken in English, all written papers can be submitted in English as well. However, a very good 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 German is required for admission (if your English is at B2 or higher, you will still need the aforementioned German skills when attending classes).
