News and Updates

For the cohort of students who started their studies of the MA "Culture - Language - Media" with the fall semester 2021, the obligation to prove language skills by submitting language certificates will be extended until the end of the examination period of the spring semester 2022.

Please continue to send language certificates directly to Dr. Machat, she will collect them and coordinate their collection with the Examinations Office/Student Affairs Office.

Update: Submission of Language Certificates (2020 cohort)

For the cohort of students who started their studies of the MA " Kultur - Sprache - Medien" in the fall semester 2020, the obligation to present proof of language proficiency by means of submission of language certificates has been suspended.

This regulation is currently valid ONLY for the cohort of students who started their studies in fall 2020 and is owed to the current circumstances prevailing in the world at large, which make it significantly more difficult to attend language courses and to take the required exams.

This regulation does not currently apply to applicants starting in the fall of 2021.

As of: 24.03.2021.
