TestDAF and preparatory courses

If you want to study at a German university, you have to prove sufficient language skills. The easiest way to do this is with TestDaF. This is an international language test offered in 96 countries. Generally, the TestDaF level 4 is sufficient for admission to a university.

The examination is developed and evaluated by the TestDaF Institute according to very strict quality standards. All participants receive the same tasks at the same time. After the exam, we send the examination papers to the TestDaF Institute. There, thoroughly trained reviewers evaluate the examination outcomes. The results are assigned to one of three levels in all four parts of the examination:

  • TestDaF level 3 (TDN 3)
  • TestDaF level 4 (TDN 4)
  • TestDaF level 5 (TDN 5)

These levels are equivalent to the competence levels B2 to C1 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
