Exams and certificates
Do you want your linguistic competence in German to be credited with an official or international certificate? Do you need it for your college enrolment or for your job?
In our schools we offer preparation courses for different exams that fit to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
Do you want to study at a German university?
The Test DaF requires the levels B2 to C1 and counts as a confirmation for students who want to attend a German university or another institution of higher education and for future jobs.
The exam can only be taken in a DaF testing centre (http://www.testdaf.de). Some of our schools are official testing centres for the Test DaF, for example our schools in Regensburg and Heidelberg.
The DSH is another exam that will allow you to be admitted to attend college and is offered by German universities. It requires the levels B2 to C2 and will take place on on the university campus. We recommend our students to prepare for and take the exam in the same city in which they want to study.
How long will it take to complete the exam?
If you have no prior knowledge and take part in a long term course you can reach the necessary level to succeed in the exam (B2-C1) within 10 months.
You will have to sign up for the exam in advance.
Do you need an internationally recognized certificate of your German speaking abilities?
The telc exam is a international standardised test that proves your language level from A1 to C2.
Our schools in Augsburg, Bamberg, Berlin, Bonn, Dresden, Freiburg, Hamburg, Hanover, Heidelberg, Cologne and Munich are official testing centres and will prepare you for the test.
Similar to the telc exam are the certificates issued by the Goethe-Institut:
- German certificate: Deutschzertifikat (B1/B2)
- Zentrale Mittelstufen-Prüfung ZMP (B2)
- Zentrale Oberstufen-Prüfung ZOP (C1)
- Language diploma „small“: Kleines Deutsches Sprachdiplom KDS (C2)
- Language diploma „large“: Großes Deutsches Sprachdiplom GDS (C2)
The participants of our intensive courses can decide themselves which exam and certificate is fit best for them, the telc or the Goethe-Institut certificates.
Would you like to married in Germany?
If you or your partner needs a German certificate to tie the knot we have the ideal course for you: a preparation for the level A2 (which is needed for the marriage license) can be achieved within four months. All our schools will make it possible for you.
