What are the academic entry requirements for my course?

The best way to find out the specific requirements for you chosen course is to check the entry requirements section on the relevant course page.
For many courses here at Arden University Berlin, we’ll take into account you previous work and life experience, as well as the academic qualifications you possess.

English language requirements

All courses at Arden University Berlin are taught in English language. If English is not your first language, you will need to provide evidence of your English language proficiency at the required level.
Alternatively, you can complete an English language test with us directly. Our English language test uses the same grading system as IELTS, and you’ll usually receive your results in just a couple of days. You can find out more by speaking to a member of our student recruitment team.


For most courses you will need to provide us with the following documents:

  • Your completed online application
  • Relevant academic transcripts from your previous studies
  • An internationally recognised passport picture
  • A scanned copy of your national ID or passport information page
  • A scanned copy of your latest degree, diploma, or certificate of enrolment with an approximate graduation date
  • Your Curriculum Vitae (CV) in English language
  • Two reference letters (professional or academic).

We encourage applications from individuals who do not meet our academic requirements but who do have a number of years of senior management experience. In this case we ask that you are able to provide professional references and other evidence of your work experience to date.

Module exemptions on your course

If you have already achieved recognised academic credits from another school or university, we may be able to consider these for APCL (Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning).
