Information

In order to successfully complete your studies in Germany, language is a very important factor. The requirements of your German language mainly depends on the specific regulations of German universities and professional courses. Some international courses can be studied in English. However, most programs are taught primarily in German. In order to understand lectures and write academic papers, applicants must have good German at the time of application. There are two different tests that can prove German proficiency: the TestDaF test and the DSH test. Currently, applicants can take the Telford test at 500 test centers in 100 countries around the world. The digital Telford exam is still required to attend the test center. The date of the Telford test can be found on its website at www.testdaf.de. The German test for foreign students entering universities(DSH exam) is administered by German Universities and Prep School and can be found at Dsh.de/Dsh-dates. However, you can also contact your university's International Exchange office for more information. Both language tests have different score requirements, and in order to receive an unconditional offer from a German university, applicants must achieve at least B2.2.

There is a test fee to take these exams, the exact fee of which depends on the organization of the exam and the country.


Tip:

More information about language certification is available at www.sprachnachweis.de, and you can also check the specific language requirements of the subject you intend to apply for. In addition, the website lists which language examination certificates can be used as proof of the German language.


Language ability:

More than 80% of international students have studied German before starting their studies. Even if your major doesn't require knowledge of German, learning German will bring you great convenience - both in school and in life.

Language classes in Germany:

A great way to improve or activate your German before you start studying abroad is to take a language class in Germany. Many German universities offer a wide variety of language courses: from beginner classes to advanced classes. Some language classes will introduce professional content, while others will introduce the general situation of Germany. Current language courses offered at German universities can be found at www.summerschools.de.

If you meet any of the following conditions, you do not need to prove language proficiency:

Abitur Certificate from a German-speaking secondary school

New C2 certificate from the Goethe Institut, the Grand Language Certificate

The German Language Certificate Level II from the Joint Conference of Ministers of Culture of the German Federal States (DSD Level II)Certificate

Passed the "telc German 1 Higher Education" exam.


The level of the German language is divided according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages(CEFR), there are three basic levels:

A: primary language use

B: autonomous language use

C: advanced language use

All levels are subdivided into 1 and 2. For example, beginners at the A1 level can only understand everyday expressions and use very simple sentences, while learners at the C2 level are close to the level of native speakers in German.


Further preparation for studying in Germany: Although you have met all the requirements for studying in Germany, you are not sure if your German level is sufficient for university study. If you have this concern, pre-school can help you. Pre-school includes language classes and prepares applicants professionally for their future study. Usually, the pre-school also introduces the students to the overview of the German higher education system and scientific working methods. Some pre-school last only a few weeks, while others take one or two semesters. In the DAAD "International Programmes in Germany" database , you can find information on pre-school programmes (www.daad.de/international-programmes type: Prep courses). You can take Test AuslandischeStudierende (TestAS) to check whether you are able to meet the requirements of German universities. Some German universities also require applicants to take TestAS. Therefore, please check in detail whether the university requires the test. For more information about the test, please visit :www.testas.de/en /.

You can also check your German proficiency by taking the Deutsch-Selbsttest des Goethe-Instituts at www.goethe.de/German/Pro/kup/tsd.html. There are also Selbsttests available on the Internet that can help you choose your field of study. For example, the Studium-Interessentest (www.hochschulkompass.de/Studium-Interessentest) can test your interests, inclinations, and talents. The test tool is free to use, and takes about 15 minutes to test. There are some self-testing tools available online, but not all of them are formal. You can check out the self-testing tools at Hochschulkompass, a guide to higher education, at: www.hochschulkompass.de/en/degree-programmes/choosing-a-programme/higher-educationorientation-tests.html

If you have decided that you want to study science and technology, SelfAssessment Internationa, an online consulting service offered by the consortium of nine German technical universities (TU9), is a good choice for you (www.global-assess.rwth-aachen.de/tu9/tm). However, the test takes about 90-120 minutes.

Tip: Some German universities and even some majors often offer such online tests. If the major you want to apply for also offers this kind of test, you can take it.


In addition, you can seek personal counseling services! You can consult the following organizations or persons:

DAAD  representative offices around the world

DAAD foreign teachers and lecturers assigned to universities in various countries

The Goethe Institute and the Goethe Language Centre

German Embassies and Consulates

In Germany, you can consult the foreign affairs offices of the universities and the DAAD headquarters in Bonn. Of course, there are many websites that also provide information about studying in Germany. For example, Study in Germany - Land ofIdeas (www.study-in-germany.de/en/) is a great choice. You can also access the site via social media (YouTube, Facebook, Instagram).
