Will the application deadlines change? (as of November 15, 2021)
Please note that dates and deadlines for applications and registrations can still change. Inform yourself regularly at about possible changes.

My language test was canceled. How can I prove my language skills? Is a certificate from my university sufficient that my studies were in English? (as of November 15, 2021)
You can take a Toefl Home Test at home. This test is the same as Toefl IBT and is also certified as such. A certificate from your university, however, is not sufficient.
