TestDaF: For your study plans in Germany

The TestDaF exam is a nation-wide, standardised test for German as a Foreign Language in a university context. The examination consists of four parts and takes approx. 195 minutes plus breaks. The oral test is done using computer software.

 

TestDaF comprises the levels B2 to C1. With a minimum score of  15 points, three parts of test showing a result of at least 4 points and one part of at least 3 points, you prove that your knowledge of German is good enough for studying at Hamburg University. For taking up studies at HAW Hamburg (Hamburg University of Applied Sciences) a score of 16 points is required. At Studienkolleg Hamburg you are exempt from an entry exam, if you have a score of 3 per every part of the TestDaF exam. This equals the German language level B2. Please enquire at the student advisory service at the university of your choice - the TestDaF exam is recognised all over Germany!
