It is not necessary to have a German certificate to apply for the Entrance exam of your choice. Depending on the programme of the exam, most of the time it is enough if the candidate can speak some English or brings a translator. The proof of German proficiency of at least B1, ordinarily in the form of a German certificate, is needed at enrolment for a degree programme. The MUK accepts certificates from officially recognized language schools (OSD certified) like “Österreichische Orient-Gesellschaft” and “Goethe-Institut”.
No German language certificate is needed, if the foreign student has graduated high school in Germany or Austria, or has an academic degree from a German-speaking university.
