Admission and Enrolment

Admissions to the bachelor’s degree programme in Romance Studies are not limited. You can begin your studies in the summer or winter semester. The only requirement for admission is a general or subject-specific school-leaving qualification permitting university admission. You do not need any previous knowledge of the Romance languages. 

The University of Bamberg’s Academic Registrar’s Office is responsible for enrolling new students. For more information, see the page on enrolment (currently only available in German). 

To complete the Bachelor of Arts in Romance Studies successfully, you need knowledge of another modern or ancient language in addition to studying a Romance language. For a modern foreign language, you need to provide evidence of proficiency at level A2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages by the end of your degree course. You also need to know Latin. Knowledge of Latin or Ancient Greek may be proven with a school report from an officially recognised high school showing at least a ‘sufficient’ (ausreichend) result after three years of mandatory lessons in the first or second foreign language – or an international equivalent thereof. Alternatively, you can obtain the Latinum qualification in Latin alongside your course. 

Because you only need to provide evidence of language proficiency when registering for your final exam, you may acquire this language over the course of your studies. The Language Centre at the University of Bamberg offers a wide range of language courses.
