Language Test for University Studies in Germany

The TestDaF is one of the recognized language proficiency tests for university entrance that you can sit at Ehrstein Language School at the dates stated below.

The TestDaF covers the language levels from B2 to C1 and consists of four parts (reading, listening, writing and speaking). Achievements are assigned to three levels: TDN 3, TDN 4 and TDN 5. When you have passed the TestDaF- level 4 in all four of its partial tests, your language certificate will be valid as a successful proficiency test for admission to a university (as well as proof of German knowledge for academic plans or academic positions).  

Each German university decides individually what language level a student requires for studying a particular subject. Some universities require the TDN 5, but most find the TDN 4 as sufficient. Information concerning language requirements should be obtained directly from the university of your choice.

The TestDaF can be taken at Ehrstein Language School as a licensed test center. Unlike the DSH, you can do the TestDaF in countries abroad and do them more than once.

Registration for a TestDaF exam can be done on the TestDaF website.
