Lehrdiplom: Application and Admission

For details on the application process, see the corresponding section on the University Homepage.

Note: Any discrepancy between the minimum requirements for admission and the requirements for completing the Lehrdiplom will be set as additional requirements ("Auflagen," see below) at the point of application.

Minimum Requirements for Admission

  • In order to be admitted to the Lehrdiplom, students must have completed their Bachelor studies in English Literature and/or Linguistics.
  • In addition, candidates must be either (about to be) enrolled in or have completed a Master program in English.
  • Note: In the FAQ section, you can find which UZH Bachelor and Master programs in English we recommend for students planning to do the Lehrdiplom with English as a first (or only) and as a second (or additional) teaching subject.

What Happens after the Application Has Been Processed?

Once their application documents have been processed, applicants will receive one of the following responses:

  • Direct admission: no additional requirements.
  • Admission with additional requirements ("Auflagen"): students may begin their Lehrdiplom studies, but they also have to fulfill additional requirements.
  • Denial of Admission: The candidate's previous qualifications do not meet the minimum requirements.
