Will external language tests be accepted?

  • The high school leaving exam (Abitur) is not equivalent to a CEFR level
  • Language certificates from other institutions are not a substitute for placement tests and are not for credit. In some cases they will be accepted as fulfilling a language requirement
  • The placement test is usually not for language certification and is not proof of academic achievement


More information on the levels and exams can be found on the different pages of the Language Center's website.


The names of the contacts responsible for recognizing language certificates and external exams can be found here.
