German citizens with international certificates

As a German citizen with certificates from abroad (both school and university certificates), you do not have to prove any German language skills, but must have your certificates recognised by the Düsseldorf district government. This government will also calculate your average grade. The regulation is only valid, if you are applying for a bachelor´s or state examination degree program.
