DAAD Certificate of Language Proficiency for semester abroad

Do you require a DAAD Certificate of Language Proficiency in order to study abroad next year? If you do, we are offering online interview slots for you to put your English skills to the test!

For whom is the DAAD Certificate of Language Proficiency?

The DAAD-Sprachnachweis is exclusively for students intending to study or do an internship abroad.

If you require proof of your language proficiency for further studies or in support of your application seeking employment you should consider taking the TOEIC. The HFU Language Center is a testing center for the TOEFL and TOEIC. If you are interested, you will find more information here on the Internationally recognised language tests we offer.

 

Who does NOT need to take a interview to receive a DAAD Certificate of Language Proficiency?

If you have completed an English course through the Language Center at the B2 or C1 level, you do not need to take an appointment for an interview. You can apply for the certificate by uploading the following documents here:
