The exam takes place at least twice a year, between the end of the respective application period and the opening of the following semester in the Central Language Center (Zentrales Sprachenzentrum). The respective appointments are set by the Language Center and are announced to the applicants in question. If the German language exam is not passed at the level of DSH 2, the applicants can be admitted to the M.A. and be enrolled for a semester with the requirement to attend course-related language courses. If, however, the level DSH 1 cannot be proven by the time the program begins, enrollment will not be possible.
