Proof of Language Competence in English: Non-native speaking applicants have to submit an official proof of proficiency level in English. Preferrably this is done via submitting test scores from TOEFL, IELTS, or ESOL or by handing in diplomas or test scores from official institutions that state and confirm your level of English. The latter have to be comparable to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). If students have studied at a university where the language of instruction is English, it is enough to submit proof of that. English teachers, translators, or interpreters who have studied for at least one year, can submit documents that show their field of study and the completed courses in order to proof their English proficiency.
