    TestDaF – General Information

    The TestDaF is a language test for foreign learners of German who plan to study in Germany or who require recognised certification of their language skills.

    All examination candidates receive the same tasks and the examinations are graded by trained markers.
    The examination results are assigned to one of three levels:

    • TestDaF-Niveaustufe 5 (TDN 5 – TestDaF level 5)
    • TestDaF-Niveaustufe 4 (TDN 4 – TestDaF level 4)
    • TestDaF-Niveaustufe 3 (TDN 3 – TestDaF level 3)


    Admission to university

    Should you reach at least TDN 4 in each subtest, nothing stands in the way of your studies in Germany as far as language is concerned (naturally the remaining academic and legal requirements must also be met). A score of TDN 5 shows that you have a very good knowledge of German, above that required at the beginning of your studies.
    Since every university in Germany has its own admissions policy, it is at the discretion of individual universities to admit applicants whose scores are below TDN 4 to courses of study. Please find out which TestDaF results are required by the university and/or in the subject of your choice prior to making your application. Some universities include such information on their websites.

    • Intermediate to advanced learners of German who wish to obtain a differentiated assessment of their language skills.
    • Applicants for a place at a German university.
    • People requiring internationally recognised evidence of their knowledge of German for their further academic or professional career at home or abroad.
    • If you have started learning German only recently, it is advisable to wait until you have reached an intermediate level before registering for the examination.


    What are the TestDaF’s advantages?

    • All German universities recognise the TestDaF certificate. A score of TDN 4 in all four subtests will guarantee admission to an academic degree course, provided that the university of your choice accepts the other elements of your application. Admission for candidates whose scores are below TDN 4 is at the discretion of individual universities, depending on factors such as the course subject, type of degree awarded and course duration.
    • The TestDaF assesses the language skills necessary for study in Germany. The content and tasks of TestDaF are all related to academic, scientific and study-relevant topics.
    • The TestDaF assesses the four language skills separately (reading, writing, listening, speaking). The certificate shows four separate results, giving you a clear picture of your strengths and weaknesses in each skill.
    • The TestDaF is a standardised test, allowing you to focus on preparation.
    • The TestDaF certificate is valid for an unlimited period of time.
    • You can resit the examination as often as you wish if you are not satisfied with your result.
