2. How to apply successfully
Does a passed intermediate examination suffice as a substitute for a university degree?
No, a bachelor or an equivalent first university degree is required.
Do I have to have all my transcripts translated?
No, only a certified translation of your university diploma is needed and only if it is written in any other language than German, English, French, Spanish or Italian. Chinese and Mongolian certificates, however, have to be attested by the German Embassy in Beijing.
