      Please upload the proof of English proficiency as a PDF document. Please note that screenshots are not accepted.

      At Constructor University, we believe in getting to know our applicants on a more personal level through a comprehensive essay. The essay should delve into your interests and motivation for choosing our university program. You can showcase your passions, highlight their alignment with our academic offerings, and demonstrate how you will contribute to the vibrant campus community at Constructor University.

      For the Fall 2023 intake, Constructor University does not require SAT/ACT scores for admission evaluation. Applicants have the choice to submit their application without a standardized test.

      However, if admitted, enrollment may require standardized testing if the high school diploma does not grant direct admission to a German university. Applications without standardized test scores will be assessed based on the personal essay, academic achievements, extracurricular activities, and overall presentation throughout the application process.

      If conditional admission is granted, it is recommended to take the SAT/ACT before arrival, although on-campus testing options and complementary test preparation may be available for those who choose to take it later.

      Students who have sat for SAT/ACT should submit their test as a PDF. Screenshots are not accepted.

      A recommendation letter is optional/upon request. This should ideally come from a school official, such as a teacher, career/guidance counselor, head of school or principal.

      If you are in a possession of a recommendation letter and you would like to submit it, please upload it as part of your application. If you are not in a possession of a recommendation letter, make sure to include the name of your counselor in the designated area on the application portal.

      Constructor University does not require SAT/ACT for admission evaluation for the Fall 23 intake. Applicants can choose to complete their application without SAT/ACT. If admitted, standardized testing (SAT/ACT) may be required for enrollment, if your high school diploma does not grant you direct admission to a university in Germany. Students who graduate with the German Abitur do not need to submit standardized test scores to Constructor University.  If you do not submit a standardized test, your application will be considered on the basis of the personal essay, letters of recommendation, academic achievements, extracurricular activities, and the way students presented themselves through the application process.

      If your admission is conditional on having to take the SAT/ACT, we recommend you take the test before arrival. However, you will also have the option to take it on campus (October and/or December) during the first semester. For those who enroll without SAT and ACT and are to take it on campus, we may also offer complementary test preparation.

      The following tests are accepted:

      • Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT): this test consists of two sections: Mathematics and Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, plus an optional Essay. Constructor University does not require the optional writing section. Each section is scored on a 200 to 800 point scale, making a perfect score of 1600. Furthermore, SAT Subject Tests are usually not required for admission to Constructor University, but Constructor University will accept scores from the exams if you choose to additionally submit them. However, students who took IB Math Studies with no natural science subject at higher level as part of their IB subject selection are required to take SAT Subject Tests in Math 1/2 and one science (Biology E/M, Chemistry or Physics).
      • American College Testing (ACT): this test consists of four sections: English, Reading, Math, and Science, as well as an optional writing test. Constructor University does not require the writing test offered by the ACT. Each section is scored on a 1 to 36 point scale. The composite ACT score is the average score of all the four sections of the test.

      Applicants can send proof of their standardized test scores via the official agencies. Alternatively, applicants could send us certified paper copies via regular post to the following mailing address:
      Constructor University Bremen
      Office of Undergraduate Admission
      Campus Ring 1
