In the Deutschen Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang (DSH) (German Language University Entrance Examination for Foreign Applicants), candidates should be able to demonstrate that their German language skills are sufficient to study at a German university. You need to be linguistically well prepared if you are to finish your studies successfully and without delay.

We administer this exam on behalf of the Munich universities for you.


We offer nine dates per year for the DSH exam. The external and internal DSH are equivalent.

External DSH: On three dates per year, we offer an external DSH. You can register if you meet the requirements for enrollment at a university in Munich. Before the exams, we offer a one-week DSH Training course.

External DSH: Dates

Internal DSH: On six dates per year, we offer an internal DSH. You may only register on if you are taking one of our Intensive Courses.
