What is the admissions process?

Depending on the Covid-19 situation, the admission procedure is carried out on site or online. All details can be found on the German site. You will also receive an email with all important information in good time before the process starts.

The admissions process consists of four parts:

  • Application
  • Written assessment test
  • Occupational aptitude test
  • Personal interview

No specialist knowledge will be covered during the admissions process. The aim is not to test you but rather to find out whether the course is suited to you and whether you have the required skills. So make sure you come to the dates well-rested and with a positive attitude!

The written assessment test

You will be invited to the written assessment test if you meet the admission requirements and your documents are complete and were submitted on time. The test will show whether you are suited to the course and will take place on a fixed date.

What does the test consist of?

The test consists of three general components covering the intellectual skills you will need on the course.

How long does the test take?

The test takes about 1.5 hours.

What should I bring to the test?

You will need

  • an official photo ID and
  • a ballpoint pen (blue or black, pencils are not permitted).

You can also use a watch and a highlighter. Paper will be provided on-site.

How should I prepare for the test?

Detailed information about the format and example questions can be found in the sample test. You will receive a detailed assessment of the test by post within a few weeks of the admissions process.


Don’t be afraid of the assessment test and don’t be nervous! There is nothing you can learn for it. Read the sample test through carefully before the day of the test and complete the example questions. This will allow you to get used to the questions and understand what awaits you.

The occupational aptitude test

All applicants who have passed the written assessment test will be invited to an occupational aptitude test.

The test involves an ear, nose and throat examination, an assessment of the candidate’s logopedic, phoniatric and audiological status and his or her physical aptitude for the profession.

The aptitude test is carried out in cooperation with the degree programme at the Clinical Department of Phoniatrics of the LKH University Clinic for Ear, Nose and Throat Medicine. Professional aptitude will be assessed by experienced speech therapists and phoniatricians.

The personal interview

All applicants who have passed the occupational aptitude test will be invited to a personal interview.

The interview will be conducted by the head of degree programme and a lecturer from the Institute. It will last around 20 minutes.


The admissions interview is your chance to introduce yourself. Take advantage of this opportunity and show why you should be awarded a place on the course. The lecturers from the Institute want to know who you are and whether the course would suit you. It’s in your hands to convince them with your CV, your interest in the course content and your personality. Of course you will be nervous. But the interview is not a test! Be honest and don’t fake it.
