German language skills
The language requirement for incoming students taking either courses or clinical experience at our Faculty of Medicine is German B2. RWTH Sprachenzentrum offers intensive language courses during September, helping students to achieve the required level of German. Insufficient command of German (less than B2) is a reason for rejection of your application.
