Students wishing to study at FH Salzburg must either have a very good command of English or German. If students want to attend courses taught in English, they have to provide certification or a letter of recommendation for having at least a B2 level in English and/or German in case it’s not their mother tongue. A valid and internationally recognized English proficiency test such as TOEFL, IELTS or Cambridge at level B2 is recommended (B2 level in English equals a minimum of 87 points regarding TOEFL iBT and a result of at least 6.0. as to IELTS). In absence of a test, we will accept a letter of recommendation from an English professor/instructor proving student’s written and oral proficiency in English.

Students can combine courses offered in various degree programmes, however, this must be planned in advance and must be specified in the provisional learning agreement prior to students’ arrival. Please contact the respective international academic advisor responsible within the degree program.
