The undergraduate law programme offered by the Faculty of Law has a standard duration of ten semesters and is therefore a so-called ‘long-cycle’ degree programme, as opposed to a 'short-cycle' Bachelor's or Master's programme.
The programme starts in October (winter semester) each year. To study for this qualification, you need to be proficient in German: therefore, international applicants for this programme must provide a German language certificate at level C1 CEFR, such as the DSH-2, TestDaF or one of the accepted equivalent language certificates.
The German version of the website has much more detailed information on the programme's structure and requirements.
For students who are considering coming to Passau to study law for a semester or two, the Certificate of Studies in European, Comparative and International Law may be of interest. This certificate programme is entirely taught in English and, if studied together with a language course from the Language Centre or in conjunction with additional law courses, fulfils most universities' 60 ECTS credit requirement per year (30 ECTS credits per semester).
