Studying made possible with TestDaF


The TestDaF is the most important German language test for international applicants and a “milestone” on your way to a German college or university: With the certificate you officially prove that you are linguistically ready to start your studies. Scientists can also use the TestDaF to prepare for research stays at German universities.

The TestDaF certificate is valid indefinitely and is recognized by all universities in Germany. Another advantage: You can take the TestDaF conveniently at our language school.
