Placement Test

 

Our placement tests are for students with previous knowledge of the language. If you have no previous knowledge, you do not have to take a placement test. Instead you can register directly for our beginners’ classes.

The Language Center offers paper & pencil tests in lecture rooms and computer-assisted tests in the Language Lab or Zuselab. Both procedures use the same test, and you are not allowed to use any help in the test. As the placement test determines your language level, no special preparation is necessary.

Placement test

The result of your placement test is valid until you successfully complete one of our language courses. If you have already attended a course at the Language Center, you cannot improve your level by taking the placement test again. You can take the placement test only once.

To take a placement test you need to set up a User Account on our website. If you do not have an account yet, please click on Your User Account. You need your university user ID, known as TIM ID, to register.

The placement test for our German Language Program takes approximately 120 minutes. You can find the dates of our placement tests under Dates & Deadlines Semester Courses.
